I thought you'd enjoy viewing those clips again of Irish step dancing by the Flashmob at Dublin Airport

The black and white clip from 1963 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYvU7oBBgKA  of a male step dancer dancing alone to the slow and easy strains of a fiddler with a large crowd gathered behind them.
Link to music by the Chieftans https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUxJ8Hxhq9I  This clip has an introduction in Irish Gaelic.  They start playing begining at 4.32
This link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3xeTpgLP5o has several reels and jigs that I regrettably didn't have time to play during this show. They are all quite beautiful.
BTW This was actually the best show I've done by myself, without any featured talent on the show appearing with me.  It was kind of a small miracle that it turned out as well as it did.  I was a bit of a wreck putting everything together in time.
Once again, big shoutout to Marlene of Great Eastern Trading Company in Cambridge.  Thanks for your sage advice and patient help with selecting the perfect green shirt for my St. Patrick's Day show.  Funny I picked the one with the parrots.  Did St Paddy have parrots?  It's not in the history I found. If he did they would be the green kind.  Definitely.

Ricardo Frota/Ecology of Sound

Sound and Vision FEATURING Ricardo Frota
Ecology of Sound




Ricardo Frota builds the instrument above using ordinary household tools and recycled materials that he found in his basement, and stuff purchased from Goodwill.
He explains as he works! You can even try this project yourself.
When he's done building it he finishes by playing it for us. 
This was fun and inspiring! 




This is the entire show 'Ricardo Frota - Ecology of Sound'  from beginning to end. 




Ricardo Frota plays several of his handbuilt instruments. 





Ricardo has made a cello from a tree trunk and one piece of wire that he plays for you.




A discarded Christmas tree has become an instrument in Ricardo's hands.
