Congrats to E. J. Jones, the best piper in Houston and member of the old band Clandestine, getting to play onstage with the Chieftans at Jones Hall. I feel like such a fanboy, but I've shook his hand and chatted with him. He's a great guy and I'm happy for him. What an entry for a musical resume! His band Willow will be playing at the Mucky Duck soon.

It was a truly great show, and we sat right next to the stage, first row (even though it was marked row 3). I could have tripped the dancers if I had wanted to reach out and do so.
We could even hear the little comments they whispered to each other. Great seats! Jones Hall was a bit warm inside but other than that it was a perfect night.

I'll write more about the evening later, especially the meal we had before.

How funny! I went to school with him. It seems strange he's a "celebrity" now

Ah well I am so Happy for E.J.!! That is wonderful to hear. He is really a sweet guy and such a funny one too. He is a very approachable guy. I saw Willow at the Mucky Duck in December. It was a very good show. He plays with the Rogues too when they had their show in November. He played couple of solos there at the show that were very good. EJ is a good friend of my daughters. She performed at the TRF this past year. She was a washer woman at the Maypole. EJ played his pipes for them during their Maypole dances.
If ya have not seen him perform with the Rogues its very much worth and And the Rogues are pretty good themselves. I highly reccomend their shows too!

It was really a great show. Joe Ely joining them. Wow!

Honestly, I looked for you at the concert - at least at intermission.
