Or is it The Big Joe...not Big Al. Guess Weird Al mingled with Big Joe in my brain and came out Big Al...guess that's the result of your mind on accordion music.

[quote="marie26"][quote]Yeah, that's it. The Harmonicats forever poisoned my psyche against harmonica music. Its a sad legacy.[/quote]
I had to search out who these cats were and am so glad I did. My grandmother's wedding song was one of their staple tunes. Brought back good memories. Thanks. I just called my Mom, and while it was not her wedding song, she loved it.

How nice that your grandmother has created a wedding song I wish on my family knows how to compose a song too. Anyway I have my band to play in my wedding reception so I guess I will play too. Hopefully, all will turn okay in my soon to be wedding besides it is only once in a lifetime for me.

I like it BobinWales. Gives "devil-may-care" feeling to me :) The first time I've heard about "bodhran". Sounds good and I can't make up my mind if I like it even more than the standard violin and accordion combination in playing this music.

I think that WoZ is going to blame me for his bodhran problems. When he, I and our lovely ladies met up in my local for a pint or six, I showed him how to play one. So, a Scots-Australian was introduced to an Irish instrument by a Welshman. Long live the Celtic Brotherhood!
