Thread Name: Celtic Connections 2004!!!
Subject: RE: Celtic Connections 2004!!!
I was also at Carlos Nunez and Kepa Junkera and had previously seen Kepa in the Concert Hall a couple of years or so ago. As I said then, the percussion instrument (the txalaparta to give it its correct name) gives a whole new meaning to Black and Decker Workmates! As my husband has just ceased paid employment, I shall set him to building me one in the garage. I shall be out there with the tuning fork making sure it's sawn off to perfect pitch!
The downside of the concert was the long trek home: multiple missed connections by public transport taking 3 hours to do what would have been 1 hour in the car, and twice the price. Next year I shall book accommodation in Glasgow!
Harriet, I saw you and your Mum at Kepa, and tried to come over and say hello, but you were too engrossed in conversation with a couple of people so I didn't like to but in!
Anyway here's to next year, bigger'n'better'n ever!
