Unlikely as this seems, you can find it on iPlayer as the play out item on the BBC Four Transatlantic Sessions V on February 24th. Not suggesting it is a good solo, feel that he's never heard of dirty slow blues and when he does, it should get better. Of course us sax addicts can get more effects and variations into our renditions with breath and embouchure control.

For Andy, Bela Fleck playing good three finger and a nice bit of frailing but none on glass banjos. So where's mine? >:)

Blues solo on Irish bellows blown bagpipe? Sounds like the sort of thing heard in a really nasty nightmare after too much strong cheese.

Davey Spillane- the Hendrix of the Uillean Pipes- did a few blues tracks with rory gallagher, I seem to remember.... and rather good they were too....

I assume that they are similar to Northumbrian pipes? Is this the same as Uilleann pipes? When I've been to early music summer schools in Durham, there's always a folk-themed evening and the prof of music from Newcastle often attends. He specialises in Northumbrian music and demos on the pipes.

Just sent it to the sandblaster's emporium to get Csalm engraved on it, oh I do hope I've speled it pruperlee.
Cheers Bill, I'll look it up later.

Thanks Bill what a treat. Bela Fleck, Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush and Danny Thompson and some folk I haven't seen before but will now research. Great to hear some five string banjo in Irish music. When I turned up with my banjo to a jam at the local Irish Club I was banned! Too loud and not a proper (tenor) banjo they said. Luckily I took the guitar along and they let me play.

Thanks again mate far better than Casualty with the missus.

I too find relief when the missus goes off to Casualty in the ambulance.

Kev,
This is non PC humour.
