Well, last night was kinda frustrating. There were maybe 2 or 3 songs that I'd played before (mainly those that Branwen and I started out together - World Turned upside down, Spanish Ladies). But I had no problem following the guy across from me with the guitar and harmonica. It also seems like there are to many chiefs and not enough Indians. When it came time for a lead, everybody tried to play one - the harp guy, Mr. whistle, etc... Mr. whistle over there needs to get over himself. A little bit goes a long ways. After a while all those whistle tunes start to sound alike - kinda like blues harmonica. Anyways, the beer was good. Not sure if I will be back again.

I did have a good time, even though the above doesn't give that impression.

Of course there will be times when two people start a bridge atthe same time, that's what happens in impromptu playing...

I really dig your bodhran... I'd love to get one of those..

At any rate, I had a blast, and I hope you'll be back for the next session on Oct. 4th...

*sigh* Sounds like I missed some serious fun.

Waylon Fan....sometimes chiefs outnumber Indians. It's what makes a jam session a jam session as opposed to having a band. Just happens that way sometimes.

I hope you do come back. I could stand to play fiddle on some Waylon songs, and do a little backing vocals...and I will sit in the corner and be a good little Indian.

AND, we'll trade Waylon for "whaling.'

Is your drum a 14" or 16"? Also, the site says the drums are available in different "tones"... is yours a specif model or tone? I really like what you had last night... did you get your tippers from this guy as well?

mine's a 16".. thanks for asking...(drum that is!) It's my understanding that he basically has one "model". When I chose mine, most of his drums seemed to be pitched a bit high for me, but I grew to like it. (also it's mellowed in the months that I've owned it.) The tone was a bit off last night as I let the skin dry out a bit. I need to care for it better. Albert sells most of his drums by mail/email. The advantage of living here in town, is that you will get some choice. He's only doing the red finish for now, but each drum is unique in look as well as sound. End of commercial. (Albert, if you see this, I want a commission from any resulting sales... or maybe a free lesson?!)

It was nice having Waylon Fan & Jeff (nice of you to join the "cat - welcome) there. It really was different than it has been. I think every person who participates adds something different to the mix. I hope you'll be back to try it out again.

I can't make it - but I am planning on being there next week! RedCelt - if you're looking for a good session, ya gotta make the Sons of Hermann Hall jam on Thursday night. It's wide open, style wise, but they say "the only thing electric is the campfire'. It's gotta be the best one in Texas. There is normally two or even three rooms goin' and some great pickers, singers, songwriters. It's a really good bunch of folks. You might give it a shot, some Thursday (every Thursday, starting about 8).

Jed,

I've been interested in that one since I heard you talk about it years ago at the quill sessions. I've kind of stayed away because it sounded waaaaay above my level, and I expected to be audience. I enjoy just sitting back and listening to a jam as much as anybody, but just playing audience hasn't been enough for me to clear the decks on a Thursday. Aaaaaanyway, I still want to make it if only to hear/see you and possibly young Jeff if he's around.

Mimosa- good point on clearing it first. I hadn't thought that far, though Nick is one of the people who mentioned the off wednesday possibility to me. I was on such a "session-high" from my first session in months that I didn't pay attention, and don't exactly remember what he said. It probably would be a good idea to check. I think that I'll just drop in tonight with no expectations and see if anything starts (though my bodhran and song books just might sneak into the truck and come along for the ride)

Sorry if this is an inappropriate interjection into this thread, but- where can I go in Dallas Sat. Oct 21-Tues Oct 24 for live folk/celtic/ type music? Or a good pub? Hoping to test drive Albert's bodhrans while I'm there. I'd love to check out the Wed. session, but that, alas, is not in the cards. I'll be in the market district, if that's any help. Thanks in advance.

Bardford - on Oct 21 you can't go wrong by visiting YOBB in Fort Worth (the pub in this thread). We'll in Oklahmoa during that time.

Try the Dubliner on GREENVILLE AVE in Dallas 214-818-0911, or the Emerald Mist in Dallas at 972-671-6478 or you might try Poor Davi'ds Pub in Dallas at 214-821-9891. There's sure to be good music at all of these clubs. Poor David's is one of the nation's oldest and bets folk music venues. It's a bit of a dive, but has a great sound system, books top notch acts and has some wonderful history!

Best of luck!

Missed you all, and I'm such a jam junkie, I kept looking at the clock and wondering, "So, I bet they've played 'Roddy McCorley' by now." And "I might have time to squeeze in a song or two if I leave NOW," at 10:00 PM. Once touring is over, I know I'll be heading west again! Keep a seat in the corner warm for me! (Well, on second thought....)

This is gonna sound dumb but does this thread refer to a real session or is it a virtual on a la Mudcat Tavern sorta thing?


Either way, Branwen, I'd recommend the 14" Albert bodhrán. It takes a little getting used to at first, but once you do, you can do anything with it that you can with a 16" drum. What's more, it seems like the tone control is more dramatic. You have to move your left hand more to achieve the same amount of tone variation with a 16" bodhrán. Don't get me wrong, either size of Albert's bodhráns is a fine drum. The 14" is just a personal preference. of mine. I use a foot stool for my left foot. This raises up the playing surface, while still allowing me the smaller drum.

Slán,
Rich

Rich,

It's a real pub in Ft. Worth, with a great friendly session. Amateur that I am, I'm well balanced by some good (and tolerant) musicians.

I went with one of Alberts 16" drums to wean myself off of my 18" Paki learner model. I had thought that I had awfully big paws to be stuffing into a 14", but I completely agree on the sound. After listening to both, I can say that it's entirely a matter of personal preference.

*Sigh* It's the off week for the every-other week session... rats! I've been living at work since last wednesday and could use a night of yeling my voice to shreds...(it's not much, but it's what I call singing...)

I'll be looking forward to seeing all and inflicting my music again soon,

Jeff

don't know, Jeff...

I was wondering is everyone is planning on showing up next week.... Seven Nations is playing at the Emerald Mist that night, and I wondered who was planning on skipping the music session to go see them instead....

I'll probably end up a loser in the pub by myself again....

Warning Crass commercial advert follows:

OK - I know it's a session week, but I have scheduled a show at Poor David's Pub in Dallas. I will be doing the first long set solo and with my friend Cliff Hale, bluegrass picker extraordinaire(sorry for the spelling). The second long set will be a song swap with my good friends Michael Harrison (Celtic/Folk performer) and Karen Riccarde with Eammons Kitchen backing us up.

We've put a bit of work into this show, with new tunes and arrangements, but - lest you think we're cheating too much, I promise you most of the evening will be our usual "seat of the pants" performance!

Please think about coming over to Dallas for the show. I know it's a weeknight, I know it's a hastle driving, parking, etc ... but I promise you we'll make it worth your while! The show starts at 9PM and goes 'til we stop (close to midnight).

Poor David's is at
1924 Greenville Ave.
Dallas, Tx. 75206
tel no 214 821 9891

There's some free parking to be found, if you look hard, otherwise most area valet parking is $5. It'll also cost you a $5 cover charge at the door. There is a full bar, no food - but plenty of good food on the block (Middle Eastern, Cajun, Burgers, etc). I'll have CDs at the club for reduced rate ($10).

Please come out to see us, if you can. We'll have a great time, and we'll be back to YOBB session next time around.

The NTIF hotel is ramada Plaza again. Their number is 214-421-1083. You'll need to speak to their reservations or sales people (not the front desk) to get the festival rate. Please make sure that you tell them that you're with NTIF. Last year, I understand that not enough people did so to meet the hotel contract.

Thanks Jeff!

Yeah, that's why I try to stay at the host hotel -- so the festival can get those free rooms. Well, it sure isn't to get extra sleep!

Am trying to get a contingent together this year. Gawd, watch out -- Amarilloans in the big city! (I usually pretend I don't really know most of them...that way I'm still on the loose when it comes time to find bail money.)

Karen, Jed... I feel horrible. I completely forgot that you guys were going to be at YOBB last night... I had planned to be there, but it totally slipped my mind and I spent last night sitting on the couch watching TV and letting my ass spread.

Spending the evening celebrating with all of you would have been much more worthwhile.
Please accept my humble apologies.

I've kept it on my tracer, but since the Opera company has enstaved me for the rest of the winter, I haven't had much to say. a friend asked me about where to hear non-classical 19th century music around Dallas. Jed?

I'd love to make it tonight ... we have a rehearsal scheduled, and a busy schedule otherwise so I am not if I can make it - BUT, I know y'all go 'til late, and I may be able to get there for the end - so if we finish rehearsal early enough I 'll come by - or Maybe I can talk Karen and the others into jammin' 'stead o' rehearsing!

Mimosa - I sent you some thoughts on other session in town to consider - I am sure there are folks around who know of others. I'm not up on all the sessions in town.

Just a heads up, guys...

It has been mentioned that we might have a bigger turnout at the session if it were held on Thursday rather than Wednesday...
Apparently there are quite a few people who play in local bands who would probably come, but can't because their bands practice on Wednesday.

I talked to Nick yesterday about changing the session day to Thursday, and he's going to check the numbers and let me know. It may turn out that Thursday won't be a good day for Nick... Apparently it tends to be a rather busy day at the pub... But we'll see.

Just wanted to post it so that anyone who's interested knows what's going on.

For now, of course, we'll continue to meet on Wednesdays.

I'm not sure Thurs's any better for me. I am frequently booked on Thurs, which is why I often save Wed for rehearsals ... 'sides, on Thurs YOBB would be competing with Dallas best jam (at Sons of Hermann).

;-)

I hope to make it late tonight.

I've got band rehearsal on Thursday nights myself. I do hope to make it back someday but my priorities have changed just a bit. Babies have that effect y'know.

Damn good session last night, y'all! Nice to see ya there Red and Branwen. I'm glad I dragged Karen out after rehearsal (so to keep ya out so late, Karen - I expect himself was thrilled with ya when ya finally got it). It was also good to play with Blarney Steve. I always enjoy his passion for playing! Mimosa - you were missed!

I hope to make a few more sessions in the not too distant future. By the way (shameless plug); Eammons Kitchen will be at the Mist this Sat night from 8 to 12. We'd love to see any/all of y'all there!

Hey Gang~

It's at least trying to go every week. I think we're fighting the season of "other things to do". Attendance has been a wee bit sparse of late, and there has been talk of taking it back to an every other week thing. I hope it's just warm weather and daylight all evening long pulling people away.

Steve, Branwen and I were talking last night about how we might spread the word a bit, and hopefully get some new blood. Anyone got any ideas?

For anyone new to the thread, we're talking about a Wednesday night session in Ft. Worth at a cozy local pub, Ye Olde Bull and Bush. The pub is at 2300 Montgomery street. Call them at 817-731-9206 for directions.

The session starts about 7-ish (7:00 musician time means sometime before 8:00), and usually lasts until midnight or so. We run the spectrum of talent from professional and talented amateur all the way down to me, the rhythym-impaired Bodhran abuser. The Craic is grand, the beer is cold, and the music is abso-bloody-lutely terrif!

Slan Go Foill,

Jeff

well - I heard lots of good things about this pub - but it's a bit of a long commute for me...

but I *do* intend to see it the next time I'm in the area.

Thread Renewal...

The session is alive an well. If anyone is in the Ft.Worth area of a Wednesday... c'mon by!

Things have been getting under way about 8-ish (musician time, that is.. could be a wee bit later, say 9-ish) and lasting past midnight.

We welcome everybody. We've had some great walk-ins.... even a couple of wandering saxaphones... who actually played Irish!

Regards, Jeff the Red

Jeff - my mandolins and I hope to make it back there one of these nights - but with a one year old son and other duties it may take a while. How about a report next Thursday morning for those of us who can't make it ? Have a great time.

Do any of you DFW catters know of any song circles that are going on?

I'd love to get involved with one...

nosluap57 - well you might find this Fort Worth session, while a bit of a drive - is well worth while. Great folks, nice pub, good music, lotsa fun! I participated quite a bit when I was not working so much - even though the drive was close to an hour each way.

BUT - there is a great session at the Sons of Hermann Hall in Dallas every Thursday night beginning about 7:30 - but really getting going by 9. The session burns all night! Or I should say sessions. They typically have two or even three rooms going. The predominant music style is Texas acoustic - but absolutley anything goes. There will be lots of guitars, a few mandos, a fiddle or two - then maybe a banjo, an acoustic bass, a harmonica, and you can count on all of 'em playin at once! BUT it's fun. It's a good group of people and they have a great time. There are a capella singers almost every week. You might wanna check it out - even if you just listen in the first week..

Does that Brawnwen girl still show up? I used to go all the time, but she pissed me off so I stopped coming out. If she's there, no way in hell I'll show up again. She turned out to be a real bitch.
