Music, Concocted With Joy

I’m a pretty simple person when it comes to music I like.  It makes me happy.  Super serious music (usually accompanied by somber faces set in stone whilst playing) leaves me cold.  My soul remains unmoved.  But give me a happy musician, who is obviously having fun while he/she plays, anytime.  And while I enjoy someone who is skilled musically, they don’t have to be the “best”.  Because sometimes in the quest to be the best, they forget why they started playing in the first place.  “Where morning dawns and evening fades, You call forth songs of joy.” (Psalm 65:8b)

Here is a guy who shows immense joy to me when he plays.  Tim Edey is very good at the guitar, yes….but watch his face.  He’s happy; he’s loving what he’s doing.  And there’s nothing better. (And Mike McGoldrick is totally amazing on the whistle; no need to breathe apparently!) Enjoy the music and your day.  Slainte, Lisa
