@stringy -

That was really a wonderful article - easy to understand how certain music can be an integral part of us. 

Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh made a very wise choice in using those lyrics, that instrument her Husband made and the video setting - it was all breathtaking! 

Thank you!

Btw, did you watch "The Fiddler of London" competition on television?  I understand the finals was just the other day - the 13th.  I didn't see it but ran across the finalists on YouTube "Fiddler of London" channel. 

Maybe something to strive for this next year?

I hadnt heard of the fiddler of london, just watched some of it, some great and talented players on there, no doubt about it. I think maybe I could get on there next year, carrying the fiddles in for the competitors 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
