Thread Name: Irish Bouzouki
Subject: Irish Bouzouki
With Italian to US immigration it is easy to see how the mandolin became popular with folk and country artists but how did the bouzouki get so popular in Irish bands? I've visited about 18 Greek Islands and never noticed a large Irish influence , most overseas family links are to US or Oz.
