Thanks to each of you for your kind and welcome comments. The arrangement was collectively evolved in this and most of tunes we did. There would be running quips during our weekly practices about herding cats, nailing jello to the wall, and. occasionally, making sausage. The main thing was first to agree on the melody itself or what would go with it—or not, then toss around ideas for introducing the tune and ways to express the music among seven people with instrumentation visually more closely associated with Bluegrass or American Country bands with a little Folkie tossed in.
We had a wonderful time featuring O'Carolan's music, especially to Irish audiences when we were fortunate enough to be the featured performers at the two Irish festivals in his name.
