+ The Scots Music Group Absolute Beginners Whistle Class in Edinburgh resumes on Wednesday 11th January. There are still some spaces available and those with a little previous experience would be able to catch up.

+ Paul McGlinchey's second CD is Boys of the Town and features Arty McGlynn on guitar, Seamus Kane on bodhrán and Ryan O'Donnell on bouzouki. Following on from the 2008 success of Unearthed, this recording includes music from his native County Tyrone and is available for download as well as CD format.

I have added this recording to the Flow discography. More details, including samples and an offer to buy his two recordings for a reduced postage and packing fee from his web site.
