My trad band, The Academy of St. Boatwright on the Lake, will be in Ireland during the first ten days of July this year, and we want to set up some gigs. We are quite willing to play for our supper. We have a repertory of some 50 numbers, both traditional jazz and dixieland, including a dozen or more two-trumpet pieces from the King Oliver band. We will be delighted to send a tape of our work. Please let me know what you think are our chances of getting four or five gigs in Dublin and a couple in Galway. Thanks. Martin Ryle, Trombone

Searching for jazz shops, and found you. Say all the best to Richie and the guys at J.J's with a special "Hello" to Louis Stewart.They may all remember me as the ageing, bespectacled, bearded Brit that co-runs "The Gallery Jazz Club" in Falmouth, Cornwall.If any of the musicians plan a U.K. tour give me a call and we may be able to include a gig in the southwest. Hope to be back in Dublin soon. Geoff

Hi Garvan..I've finally returned for that long overdue visit. I have spent so long perusing through your site that I got carried away (as usual) and forgot what I came here for. I am searching for an interesting character from Irish Mythology perhaps you might be able to point me in the right direction re: your links? Meantime I'll try to find my own way round. The page is looking GREAT, as ever, love the way top intro bar stays put. Let me know if you come up with anything. You know where to find me! Till next time...Take care...Liz.
