Plain in the city

A plain Quaker folk singer with a Juris Doctorate in his back pocket, salt in his blood, and a set of currach oars in the closet, Ulleann Pipes under his arm, guitar on his back, Anglo Irish baggage, wandering through New York City ... in constant amaze. Statement of Faithfulness. As a member of the Quaker Bloggers Ad Hoc Committee I affirm that I will be faithful to the Book of Discipline of my Meeting 15th Street Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends.

New Blog... Big Change in my life....

Self portarait with Egan

The on going story of an historical harp, made by John Egan, almost 200 years ago, found in a dumpster in New York City. Egan invented the modern Irish folk harp and saved Irish harping. The blog is about this harp, its life and times, its being found, and going to England for conservation and restoration, about my going from being a piper to a harper... a ripping yarn.

I also hope I can neglect this, my first blog a little less...
