Welcome to my blog!

I've enjoyed playing Irish traditional music for many years in Japan. I usually play the Irish flute. I sometimes play the anglo concertina.

Satomi (my wife) also plays Irish traditional music. She plays the concertina, whistle and bodhran. She plays much better than me!

<Recordings>

There are more than 500 recordings on my blog. I usually record Irish tunes alone though I'm not a good player.

I love playing set dances, so I recorded many set dances.

Satomi and I recorded some tunes together.

There are lots of recordings I did when I joined sessions.

<Musical Instruments>

We've tried more than ten concertinas so far.

And I've tried about twenty flutes.

I like repairing concertinas, too.

I built a Clover Kit in 2012.

Hi. Enjoyed your blog. Trying to decide between a Sutter and a dipper. Which do you prefer and for what reasons. Would you be able to play the same tune on both so I can hear the difference.
