mikesamwild William Irwin, Lake District fiddler (40) RE: William Irwin, Lake District fiddler 24 Apr 12

I wish I could say ,like 'Iam Spartacus' I too am descended from Wm IrwinI Following the notes in The Boat Band CD sleeve I have visted his grave seveal times. I've nbeen going to Langdale since I was a lad (1950s) and the insight into the social life of the area enhanced my love of the physical environemnt. I also found Tom Flett's books on Lakeland dancing great too.

I was always impressed at how Wm Irwin walked miles to play for dances and how he he got back again! I once walked late at night from Keswick via Borrowdale to Wasdale with just a small torch - to a climbing dinner and it was a dodgy do on Aaron's Slack and I'd not had a drink either!

The symposium sounds great.

It would be nice if the music books surfaced!
