Nae bother Malky, cause if you missed it, you can catch it again on Thursday afternoon at 02.50pm on BBC1.

After that, you may be even be able to watch it on the BBC iPlayer

Well, the last 10 minutes or so, featured our weekly Springhill Bar Session in Portrush alright.

In the session, you saw a touch of the Scottish influence on the music in this part of the world, with instruments like the Scottish Smallpipes {Ian Kinnear's} & English Concertina, as well as the more usual Fiddles, Melodeon, Bouzouki, Uilleann Pipes, Harp, & Bodhran

I'm not sure though, if I'll ever recover from the shame of being 'OUTED' on national TV, as a closet Bodhran Player

... Oh & I'll probably have to steer well clear of Swedish Fiddle players for a while! ;-)
