Instrument Makers in Parsippany!

At the Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann North American convention in Parsippany, New Jersey this weekend (April 8 – 11, 2010), a number of instrument makers will be exhibiting their products, providing an opportunity to meet the makers and try out their instruments. As of right now we are expecting the following:

The Button Box – concertina

Frank Edgely – concertina

Jeff Thomas – concertina

Windward Flutes – flute

Rob Forbes – flute

Walt Sweet – flute

Jerry Freeman – whistle

In addition, Forbes and Yola Christie of Windward flutes will be offering on-site repairs, and will be donating a portion of the fees they receive for these services to the fund we have established to help young musicians travel to Ireland to compete in the All-Ireland Fleadh this summer.

The instruments makers will each have a hotel conference room from 7pm until the wee hours (or they run out of energy) on the coming Friday and Saturday night. Please stop by and pay them a visit.

All the best,
