GUEST,Jim Carroll Tech: obtrusive session instruments (95* d) RE: Tech: obtrusive session instruments 29 Sep 07

For a time here in Ireland you could buy car stickers similar to no-smoking signs (cigarette with red line through it), but with a bodhran instead and the words "no dead goats".
Some years ago at a local music pub a stranger walked in with an enormous, very flashy bodhran, with which he began to nause up the session very loudly.
After a while, he went to the toilet, leaving the offending instrument on his stool.
A local lady (with drink taken) walked in and inadvertently leaned on the bodhran smashing it into a thousand pieces.
The following week she arrived at the session to be greeted by a deputation of locals, one of whom made a congratulatory speech and ceremoniously presented her with a medal and a scroll for her services to traditional music.
