Left to right: Bodhran, Fiddle, button accordion (the leader, he also plays whistle, guitar, once in a while a Framus 5-string banjo, other instruments. Up the left side of the table: KW, Whistle (Tim), Flute, Fiddle- On the other side of the table, (see other Photo: Snug BHO T-Shirt) Whistle (co-leader, also plays Flute), Flute, Button Accordion, Bodhran. the third co-leader of the session , a Fiddler, was away that night, but two other fiddlers came in. There's usually about the same number, but other than the three leaders, the rest of the musicians are sitting in, so the configuration changes. I am usually called on to sing "Danny Boy" because I sing it in G, which calls for a high B. The first time I sang it there, everybody in the band just looked at me when it was done, so I wandered if I did something wrong. Then the leader said- "Did you know you sang that in G? I said, "no, why?" "Well, most people sing it in C" says he., "Why did you sing it in G" so I replied, "Because Marty (the concertina player) played it in G and I could, I guess." So that's how I got pegged to sing Danny Boy. I really have to learn another tenor piece...
