music in winter, continued

One of the fine things about music is that it bridges the spaces between solitary work and creating in community. There’s nothing quite like the immediacy of music played live -- unless it might be good conversation among friends. At a good session, both go hand in hand and both are part of the connections made. That is also true of more formal stage performances, especially of the sort of music we talk about here. Music and conversation are things to remember, to enjoy, the celebrate, and to look for more opportunities to share in this winter season and beyond. Give yourself and others the gift of hearing and playing music -- and the gift of conversation, too.

The photograph which goes along with this is from a session which was part of Ceol Chairlinn in County Louth last week. Stay with us here along the music road for more about that winter music weekend, which just finished its fourth year.
