more records from Brendan

discovered today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QcZ14UFdR8 O'Carolan belongs to my favourites. And I love the harp too. It comes from his 2015 album "Harp to Harp", which he did together with Anne-Marie O'Farrel on the harp. I already have quite a lot of Brendan's records. But this one I did not ...

Re: PowerChromatic options?

@ Seydel: And if the high price should be a retarding argument, I can recommend to choose the "Deluxe Steel" version. It has eactly the same reedplates as the "Saxony Steel".

Guilhem Desq

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-vvLi5WVPk No harmonica involved. But this guy is ingenious anyway. And he shows a marvellous example how to modify and develop an old and well known instrument - in this case even one from the middle ages. An aspect which is vivid in this forum as well.
