I’m very pleased that I will be endorsing Elixir Bass Strings this year.
I started using them for my live work last year and was extremely impressed by how long they keep their tone and tuning stability and now use them in the studio as well so rock on Elixir.
For the Bass anoraks among us I use Nanoweb Nickel Light / Long scale .045 – .130 on my
Sandberg and Emerald

I am a session bassist and contemporary composer based in Ireland, most of my studio work these days is done from my own studio via Dropbox etc. I am also a member of Derek Ryan's touring band.
I play Double bass and Bass guitar and most recently a derivative of the Chapman Stick, the NS Stick and several other instruments when I must :-)
I have two solo instrumental albums on release called "End of a longer day" and "A small shadow" and my sister Susan and I are currently writing and recording a series of Audiodramas/Books called the The Todalie Stories, a series for kids of all ages including adults that refuse to grow up. comprising Text, Audio & Illustrations (by Vitya Malirsh), inspired by special people, the unseen little folk, and other fantastic creatures that inhabit the woods, streams and lakes on this island .
The stories explore the concept of triumph over adversity and illustrate the importance of inclusiveness, the powerful impact of community spirit, bringing together disparate groups to achieve a common goal in a respectful inclusive space.
The first story (abridged) is available as a Podcast called The Todalie Stories on all good podcast providers and on www.todalie.com.
During lockdown I completed a course in Music Composition for Games in Pulse and Griffith College Dublin, and am currently involved in several exciting writing projects so watch this space!

Sounds great, you are a busy musician! I sent my transcription of The Heron in a pdf file to the email you gave me but haven’t heard back if you got it yet. Hope so!
Hi Susan, got it, thank you. Very impressed.
Been up to my ears trying to finish the Layliana podcast for the end of the month, I’m very happy with it so far, fingers crossed that people will like it.
Thanks so much, it was a labor of love. My brother and sister in law love it too and passed it on to his dulcimer group
He said it sounds very nice of hi Kerry D whise
Sorry, slip of finger, that would be whistle. The Heron and yourself will be well know around our parts soon! I am going to listen to the Podcast asap. Thanks again!
