    Hi, Jimmy, It was uncanny last night at McGinty's in Silver Spring, MD. Someone started the Galtee Hunt and only I and that person started out playing it! Others eventually joined in, though. But, oh, it felt so good to play an 8 + 12 measure tune at a session! Also, since I was playing whistle, I have to confess that it took me a couple of minutes to realize I had just learned it last week, but on the accordion! Thanks so much for coming to Elkins and for your wonderful class! all the best, Janina, who wanted to message you on FB but couldn't locate that option; perhaps they changed that too?

    Hi Jimmy, Memories of the past flood back when i hear you play. My father always said you were the best that ever played the piano accordian. Sure every time he saw you he wanted to hear a tune. He loved the way you played and bragged about you ever chance he got. : ) I remember when we were small and our fathers (RIP)would put us fighting for sport. :laugh: My best to your Mother (Mary) and I hope to surprise you some day at an event. God Bless Raymond Sullivan

    i just saw you on sunday at sebastople celt fest. my favorite part was hearing you warm up and you played very quietly a set that was very fast and soulfull. and i like to close my eyes too to go into the music. the song i just downloaded that i really like of yours is- gweneen. i cant even pronounce the word. and the song above it bluehill is great too. i know you carry some deep songs. i want to express i am very thankfull to hear gweneen and to hear you practice before your sets. thank you for carrying some beautifull soul. i'm a little down right now and your songs help rise me. set my heart back dancing.
