It was a damp and drizzly Tuesday eve – a soft night that was Irish enough to suggest it could be fun to swing by the Barley House in Concord. Our cohort Bob Dunleavy is a regular there, but I rarely get the chance to make a visit.
I was happy to see another sometimes-visitor R.P. Hale (no relation, that I know, to our Pete Hale) was there with one his own customer hammered dulcimers.
Paddy Keenan happened to drop in to listen and chat. As I’d noticed him sporting a nice camera the last few times I’d seen him, I enjoyed talking with him a bit about the picture-taking opportunities that become a part of his musical travels.
Greg Heppe stayed later than me – no worries about getting the store opened on time in the morning.
