Some useful music-related links

Some of these links may be dead, I'll check them out soon and will weed out any dead ones and maybe add some new ones. I am also starting to hotlink band and pub names in the other sections to their web sites if I know of them.

One good resource, especially for celtic musicians, is Don Walsh's page. Don is guitarist and jokester and one of the founders of Tickle Harbour. His page has pointers to more resources.

Another is music promoter June Hiscock's page.
