Heloo, I have just bought this CD, it is really nice, I bought it off Bill Sables at his Birthday session tonight, i was not goinf to buy it at first because i was a bit skint and I never heard of any of the tunes on it, but bill said it was a good Cd and woth the money.I am glad I did now because it is really nice amd worth the money, I would reccomend that people buy it UK people can buy it off bill, it is 10 quid, but well worth it, I have played it 2 times already, and I reelised that I did know some of the tunes on it anyway I just didmt know what they was called, if you like irish music you will like it, if you are american you can get it straight of mick, he is called Big Mick.its a good CD.john

Singing in the holiday mood...

Although it's been said
Many times, many ways,
It's a good one, for sure!


Still enjoying mine!

John, thanks very much for your kind comments. I am glad you are enjoying it. For all the performing I have done, this is the first time we have done a CD. Very similar to Don Meixners wonderful CD. His is a veteran band, that just never got around to recording. But I can recommend his CD highly.

And I could care less how you spell it, I just appreciate the nice comments.

Thanks, my friends.

Mick

I got it, I like it.

Get it, you'll like it too.

The Conklin Ceili Band puts the Irish-American in Irish-American.

N I mean that in a good way.

We are in our second run of this one, and in the planning stages for number two. I love the description given by Willie-O. We have never tried to be pure "Irish", rather we try to be a group of very proud Irish Americans, mixing our musical influences with our takes on the songs/tunes and being as original as possible in our arrangements. Or we take a great old song and blend with a synergistic (howzat fer a word)tune, as in the Carlow/Swallowtail arrangement. As musicians, we all understand how important validation from our peers can be. You have all made me feel very good. Thanks.

John, I appreciate your comments very much. Thanks for your ongoing support. When I get to your neck of the woods, the Guinness is on me.

All the best,

Mick

The instrumentation on the CD is 6 string guitar, 12 string guitar, bass guitar, 48 button concertina, 22" bodhran, Irish bouzouki, whistles, banjo, mandolin, and hammered dulcimer.

John, we don't have a trip planned yet, but we have talked about it a bit. It would be great to do Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England, and catch a gig or two along the way. But the real fun would be in the sessions.

Got to go to bed. Early day tomorrow.

All the best,

Mick
