mainly a musician
What style(s) of music do you write or play
I grew up with and still love to play the Celtic / Folk style of music. I have a couple of tunes that I have written, but mostly I like to try to arrange music that is in the traditions of our Celtic cultures for the diatonic harmonicas.
If you have one, what is your website?
I usually try to group the tunes I've learned to play with the reed harps on Other places to find my music is on YouTube at "KelticDead" [one word].
Anything special you'd like us to know about?
Love to play music in the traditions of our Celtic dead. I have been involved with the Southwest Celtic Music Association since 1985, and they regularly publish my "Keltic Dead Music" feature within their newsletter, "Ceili."
What instrument(s) do you play?
I mostly play the diatonic harmonicas now. I use to play the six-hole Celtic whistle, and I make my own out of copper.

Folk Music in Allen, Texas ????

There are so many "closet" folk musicians around and you can find them everywhere, and every community should have one. Last year two ladies, Judi Altstatt and Jeanne Fisher created the Allen Folk Music Society in Allen, Texas. This year, they're branching out to help establish a place for all these quiet folk musicians in the Allen Community and beyond to meet, share coffee, and hear/or play Folk, Old Timey, Celtic, Irish, Bluegrass, and pop music, as well as a place for storytelling, and…

Celtic Harmonica with P-zazz!

This Saturday, February 6th, the Trinity River Whalers visit the Trinity Hall Irish Pub in Allen, Texas. Aside from some fantastic singing, guitar playing, mandolin picking music, by Micheal Price, Marj Troyer, Steve and Roger Harrison, Randy Christian plays the congas and blends in some mighty fine harp music. Randy is kinda shy when it comes to his musical talents and the harmonica, whistle, drums, and any other noise maker you can find, but without a doubt his rhythm with the harmonica makes… Continue

Irish Sessiuns

Happy New Year.

Traditionally, a Celtic music "sessiun" is a gathering of like minded folk musicians who come together to play a variety of instruments with music that is in the traditions of their Celtic cultures [Irish-Scots-Wales-Americana-etc.]. These sessiuns are usually lead by one person who keeps the group on track with the theme of that purpose. The Trinity Hall Irish Pub in Dallas have been sponsoring sessiuns for a number of years under the direction of the "Traditional… Continue

New Trinity Hall Irish Pub Opening!!!!

They're opening up this weekend (Dec. 4th).

Just in time for Halloween [Samhain time]

For those of you who like harps (harmonicas that is), I just got my new harp tune worked up that I've always associated with this Celtic new year [Samhain time for you Celtic folk out there]. Dunmore Lasses is a lively tune, and yet has a mystical feel about it that I've always loved. Hope you do too. Visit my KelticDead Music site at

OMG! I didn't get home last night until ... well, this morning until 6:45 AM! My two daughters were furious with me! :-) I am so glad we got a chance to actually meet... and can't wait to jam! Jody's beautiful young neighbor wanted to sing "Fields of Athenrye"... then she had everyone listen to a song by "Floggy Molly"! Please let me know when you are playing somewhere!

I have two harps, a key of C Cracker Barrel special and a Lee Oskar Dm my daughter gave me. Trying to learn. You're right, easier to pack than my guitar, banjo and fiddle these days.
