Thread Name: One song performers
Subject: RE: One song performers
That's true Jack. We used to have an old fellow that came in an Irish session in Manchester. They told me he'd been a fine fiddler before his stroke, but all he played after (sweating profusely, at one bowing per quaver, and only quavers) was Red River Valley. No one looked down on Jimmy Reid, though.
It's the ones in "full" possession of their faculties that bother me.
I've tried the "here's a good song" approach too.
