Subject: RE: Help: Howlin' Gael (Howling Gael) recordings
Hi all,
I am still alive and kickin and sure miss my friend Bob Kotta. He and I went to Ireland in '78 just to immerse ourselves in the music and culture so we could be better at doing the Howling gael gig... We lugged around guitar, mando, bodhran and hammer dulcimer... can you believe it? We played on the streets and in bars and were treated very well, except by the cops. Robin joined the group just before the second LP. Mary left the group right after that. there were a lot of hard feelings I am sorry to say. being in a band is like a marriage... only without the sex to keep it together (in most cases) Anyway, it just so happens I am headed to Portland Oct 2nd for a reunion of sorts. Robin and Lex have promised to join me onstage at White Eagle's open mic 10/2/11 if you care to join us. This is totally ad libbed... no promotion of any kind.
