Thread Name: Irish bouzouki
Subject: RE: Irish bouzouki
Just out of curiosity, how did bouzouki enter Irish music? If anyone knows how the larger members of the mandolin family (bouzouki, cittern, mandola, mandocello, etc) crept into Ireland, I'd like hear! Was Johnny Moynihan one of the first to use it, or were there earlier performers?
