Hi, Jimmy, great seeing you again after all those years. McNamara's was a hoot! Thanks for posting the session info, I'll be up in Chicago area in June, and will try to get in to the city for at least one session. Now I have some to choose from!
Heckuva website, Jimmy! And thanks for your friendly tolerance. And I'm most interested in those cylinder recordings. All I can offer in return is something worth it's pricetag: free medical advice.
Thanks Jimmy, you're music is amazing. Saw you a concert near Rochester, NY years ago and loved every minute of it. Thanks again, Sheila
Really enjoyed hearing you for the first time last night at McNamara's. Only wish you were coming back to Nashville soon. You are truly a virtuoso on the accordion.
Just heard your version of
The Constitution and the Guerriere for the first time today, Best damned setting of the song I've ever heard. Amazing that I heard it for the first time 200 years after the battle almost to the day. You bohyos kick ass like Yankee Tars. Huzzah! Thanks for giving us this much needed reminder of what made America what she was, before, we became the modern Rome. Leave it to the Irish to keep the legend of America Alive. After all the Irish had a hell of a lot to do with building the damned place in the first place.
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?
Hey James. Glad to see things are working out for you. Hope to see you play soon with my son Patrick. Mark.
Reluctantly getting back to planet Earth after Joanie's cruise.Quick note to say how much I enjoyed your playing+style.Truly a master of the instrument,reinforced during the late night sessions. A gentleman,as well-leading the way during "The Big Squeeze". Hope for a repeat next year- was a blast!
Jimmy, I want to thank you for playing at Tom Flanagan's 75th birthday celebration. It meant alot to him and you were, as always, great. Many thanks.
Hey Jimmy we are all wondering why your not playing at the c leveland irish festival this year? You will be greatly missed especially by my father Joe Conway.
