Jens Kommnick - The Cat in the Bodhrán / The Welder

Jens Kommnick, LIVE in the Walburgiskirche at the "Venner Folkfrühling"-Festival, 9th May 2009.

The first jig is more jazzy than traditional and written in the early 90s, it was a teenager before it had a name! The title came about when during a visit to flute players Catherine McEvoys and Tom McGormans house one of the family cats was contentedly purring while ensconced in a bodhrán!

The Welder is dedicated to my late father who had a great passion for and knowledge of metals. His hobbies very much involved working with his hands, one of his favourites being the welding of metal and semi-precious stones into beautiful jewellery.

Hope you enjoy my music,

Jens Kommnick
