As some of you may know, my main musical activity is as a tenor at the Wagnerian Association Choir in Buenos Aires, plus some traditionals and spirituals as soloist (which brought me to this wonderful place). I tried to make music with my family, but my wife silently flew to the bathroom, one of my sons got a phone call, the others escaped to the street, and Giménez (dog officer) buried itself under its blanket. Neighbours shut doors and windows too, and the experience was rather lonely. I think I should try the bagpipe or similar.

Un abrazo - Andrés

We 3 do - Me, Eileen & son Simon have played together as Clansfolk for 10 years now - mainly at the local clubs/events/Festivals and the Falcon where the "clan" first performed, nowadays individual pressures of other groups and workloads mean that has become less over the last couple of years - but we still enjoy singing and playing together whether in public or just for fun.

Back in the 50's I sang with my two brothers folk and sea shanties (I was the youngest and they needed someone to sing high harmony!) and now whenever we get together we end up singing some of those "old" songs. Both my Father and Grandfather sang in groups and solo and I grew up with the sounds of music and families singing.

Singing with family is great fun - the voices always seem to fit together well and there's that intuition and natural timing that comes with the genes!!!

Sadly, although being surrounded by all kinds of music and dance since birth, none of our 4 kids have shown any inclination to sing with us. Two have tried learning instruments, my daughter has dabbled with Clog and Morris dance, but they all have other hobbies which are more interesting to them. A shame because my younger two (Daughter #1 and son #3) both have good voices, and on one occasion did sing a Welsh song at a club. Daughter is into horse riding (Gymkhana/mounted games) and all 3 sons are more into playing games on computers. We have to get by as a duo on the few occasions that we perform nowadays.

Recently met up (after 40+ years in some cases) with my paternal cousins,of which I am the youngest (by a month). 8 of us survive out of 9. Discovered one at 67 is wearing a beard and pony tail and cowboy boots, is heavily into C&W and goes line dancing 3 times a week!
Don't think I'll be joining him!

My wife and I have been performing together for about 12 years. If we ever figure out how to fuse jug band and ska our son may join us.
