Mentioned in other threads, but never a thread to himself, I don't think. Here's a wonderful clip from youtube that: says it all.

Added to that is the Bodhran playing which I fell in love with. And, I picked up the Jacquesatar (spg?) style first try... maybe because I am half Acadian?

"Give us the forgiveness and let us walk with you" comes immediately to mind... great stuff, all of it.

One of the most powerful songs I ever witnessed live was by Rawlins Cross. Written in 20 minutes after news of Emile's death, "Long Night" is an amazing tribute to a great man.

Vive La Rose.
