stupidbodhranplayerwhodoesn'tknowanybetter Folklore: need info about 'Wrenning' (40) RE: need info about 'Wrenning' 16 Dec 99

There is an interesting book I read last year called the Bodhran Makers. that portrays the wren hunt as a door-to-door busk to gather funds to hold a ceili in early January. Also, The live recording of Cathal O'Connell & Len Graham "For The Sake Of Old Decency" has a photo of 2 wren-boys playing (appropriately) flute and bodhran. It doesn't have any info but at least it could be a nice visual aid Slan agat, Rich
