January 2018:

Sadly, I have to announce that my musical partnership with Ted Ponsonby has come to a premature end due to a recurring back problem which has severely restricted Ted's ability to travel far from home....

For the past three or four years I've thoroughly enjoyed Ted's company... his dry wit, his impeccable playing and all round musicianship, and the wonderful hospitality of Ted, his wife Marilyn and daughter Sarah whenever I've been staying over in Donegal.

Ted it was who encouraged me to make our joint album "Just Sayin..."  A project which turned into the most enjoyable recording experience I've ever had (thanks also in great part to Joe & Donna Murray in their "Sessions in the House" studio in Castledawson)

However, I've learned over the years to 'never say never' and hopefully we'll get to do it again at some point..... if only in Donegal.

                             Just Sayin'......     Thanks Ted!
