GUEST,guest - Jim Younger Do folk people like the Bodhran? (115* d) RE: Do folk people like the Bodhran? 20 Apr 10

Oh dear - it's really a question of musicianship ... to me anyway. If a good percussionist came with a frame drum and played along with me - even if it was on an Appalachian tune - I would be happy. What's the problem? I'm thinking of the guy in Cordelia's Dad ... can't remember his name just now, but he was very nifty. And there was a guy down in Collier's Wood once who played blindingly well on a frame drum. If you're shit, you're shit, if you're good you're good, whatever you play. There's a photo I saw of some outfit in New York from maybe the 30/40s with a drum proudly displayed.

Why can't we get together and attack the mandolin-banjo players for a change? They truly are the spawn of Satan. (Oh, that includes me, never mind.)
