Yesterday, I had a lovely show out at Misonopia, a retirement home in Seto City. Thanks to Yamashita-san, my old friend and guitar teacher from about 25 years ago, who organized the event as part of his music therapy work at the home.

It was an Irish and American music event and I enjoyed playing some Irish traditional music again with the lovely flute player, Nakane-san.

The American music was played by a very interesting husband and wife duo called Neko-ya, As the name suggests, they are cat fans and the percussion instruments were all hand-made and featured beautiful carvings of cats. They played an interesting range of instruments including nose-flute, uke, harmonica, and kazoo.

When we were leaving, the sun sent a lovely ray over us as we posed for this photo.
