Some men are drawn to oceans, they cannot breathe unless the air is scented with a salty mist. Others are drawn to land that is flat, and the air is sullen and is leaden as August. My people were drawn to mountains- Earl Hamner Jr.
Probably not considered traditional, but I do drumming with a pipe band. Although, when you think about it, the drum is the most ancient of all instruments.
I was taking piping lessons when I was much younger. Actually, I was trading lessons with a piper friend of mine. When I went into the Army, my pracitce chanter got lost in the shuffle. I never got another one.

There was actually a little while when Jazz/Big Bands were getting popular in Ireland. Because people were making saxophone or trombone their instruments (instead of fiddle or pipes) these "jazz" instruments began to find their way into the ceili bands of the time. Likewise...jazz inflection was starting to creep it's way in too and the local dance music became a weird swing Jazz/Irish hybrid
Could you imagine doing the Walls of Limerick or the Haymaker's jig to Benny Goodman swing??
