Hey Mary, every guitarist seems to have a good story about their instrument. What's yours?

I have this guitar for many years. I bought it in Sam Ash Music shop in Paramus NJ ~20yrs ago. It has been through thick and thin, travels to Ireland and many parts of this great country as well. It has had it's share of falls and survived. The man who repairs it and keeps it going is called Matt, he owns the best shop in the country which is 30th Street Guitars in NYC. If it could talk ... Peter Yarrow played it, one of the Saw Doctors, and a lot more but I can't bring them to mind at the moment. Not much of a story I'm afraid.

Thanks Gerry so much for all your hard work and dedication to our culture and heritage.

Peter Yarrow, Saw Doctors, that guitar had and has some great musicians strumming, Mary. You are most welcome. The Irish experience is inspiring, and it is our pleasure to explore it in these pages.

I love photos like this! It is what I strive for when I photograph a seissun or a concert. It captures the unique relationship each musician has with their instrument

Such talent that has coaxed the songs from your guitar!

Thank Gerry. I should also have given the photo credit to Jimmy Kelly.
