My fiddler friend Christine and I have played for various ceilidhs, sometimes
reinforced by a box player of our acquaintance. So far we haven't heard
complaints as far as our music and enthusiasm are concerned :^)

I don't have July 2011 on my radar screen yet and as Christine is likely to be
changing jobs between now and then and we can't tell where she is going to end
up, logistics might be a bit tricky. Seonaid, do send me private e-mail if you
want to talk specifics.
