John Anealio

John is a guitar and Bouzouki/Octave Mandolin player. He writes songs about science fiction and fantasy.

On this video he complaints that Steve Jobs hates Flash, so he can't watch videos on his iPad. That's a problem, indeed.


Heres another one:Last Drink Bird Head


Here you can visit his blog:

Buskin in Sligo played by Peter Hankiewicz

My friend Peter from Frankfurt/Germany posted this video in which he is playing a song by Peter Hoben from Castlebar Co. Mayo. His bouzouki is made in Serbia, it's the first of its kind built there. The sound is superb, as far as I can hear from the video.

By the way: Peter is singer of the band "Blue Blistering Barnacles". For further information visit:

2Duos

2Duos is a Scottish/German project and consists of Aaron Jones, Claire Mann and Gudrun Walters and J├╝rgen Treyz. They mix German and Scottish songs and tunes in a fresh and lively way. My friend Peter saw them live in Bad Homburg, Germany on 08.04.2010 and posted some videos on youtube. Many thanks to Peter for sharing.
