NeilD,

I knew that, but had forgotten it. Thanks for the reminder. The demands of the road and family commitments pulled at him until he decided to stay in Pittsburgh. We crossed paths quite a bit from '98-02 when I moved to Nashville. Whenever he'd sit in w/us he'd play my mandolin during breaks...not sure, but it seems it was around this time he acquired one of his own.

I played bass, guitar and mandolin and we did alot of 'Irish Pub' type music. He was looking to leave a 'swing' project he was involved in and I was looking to leave the band I was in. We discussed forming another Celtic band a couple of times and then he got the offer to tour w/Gaelic Storm. Glad to know he's still going strong. Great player, better person.

Sorry for the thread drift.
