Latest Musical Adventure

The tin whistle is a six-holed woodwind instrument that is frequently featured in Celtic music.  Seemingly simple at first, but becomes more complex the more you learn.  Great example of a low tin whistle with guitar accompaniment at the youtube link below.

Up and Coming Music Artists

Kiev is a new artist out of L.A.  They sound similar to Radiohead with a more eclectic funk.  Their first album is entitled "Ain't No Scary Folks In On Around Here".  View a sample song at Youtube below.

Another incredible artist is Emily Wells.  She is a violinist that manages to seemlessly blend hip-hop and classical.  She has a voice that is reminescent of Bjork.  She has also mastered the muscial art of the loop.  See a perfect example at Youtube below.
