Wow, Felicity, this blog is great. I didn't know you were doing this. Very informative...

I too played various music, including trad, when I lived in Tottori. I played at Gael a few years back and am gearing up to finally start playing gigs again, hopefully from after Golden Week.

Looking forward to new posts!

Hi! Sean O'Connor is my name. I am a full-time Irish musician from Dublin and have recently moved to Japan. Your blog is wonderful and so helpful. I am seeking musicians who play Irish trad to join myself and a japanese Irish flute player. Have you any advice as to how I can find such musicians? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you and keep up the good work.
