Victoria Day Weekend musings

Greg James points out that

Roger Landes and Randall Bayes will be appearing on this Sunday's RTE program [The Late Session].

Randall and Roger's recent CD House to House (sound clips available) is a truly excellent recording, recorded in a series of house concerts over a period of a few months.

Greg Dahms is an Ottawa bowmaker, one of whose bows is being used by Martin Hayes. My main bow is one of his - in fact, I think it might be the first one he sold. I just never gave it back... He's just put together a web page with some photos of his bows (plus others that he carries), some interesting links and contact info.

Maureen Mulvey-O'Leary sends out a regular newsletter, which reminded me that there are a number of Toronto area radio stations that have regular Celtic music features:
