A Delightful Evening of Music

It was late afternoon and I was on the road returning home when my cell phone rang. I expected it to be Paul but it was my friend Helen. Would I like to get out for awhile this evening? Jonathan's home from Colorado and we're having a few friends over and he's going to play his guitar. Ahhh....but of course, night out and Jon's guitar playing, I'll be there; and what a delightful evening it was. You see Jonathan, a very accomplished guitar player and lover of Celtic music, went with his friend Rosh to Ireland last year and they played their way around the country. They basically set the whole thing up over the Internet, playing their music in exchange for room and board. They played in some pubs but sometimes just in people's homes. They stayed in youth hostels, homes and inns. They even played for their meals. Jon's guitar was made in Ireland. It has the most beautiful sound. He had purchased it before he made the trip and was able to meet the man who made it. The circle was completed. (I wonder if he played for him? I didn't think to ask.)

Here are 3 tracks you can listen to:
#6 - What A Friend We Have In Jesus (Traditional Arr. By John Standefer)
#12 - Moran's Return (Traditional Irish Arr. By Pat Kirtley)
#13 - From Darkness (An Original work by Jon)
