Subject: RE: Musicians you admire for reasons other than music
Anne Feeney - slogging away for a lifetime defending trade unionism in the US, never getting far above the poverty line.

Dick Rutter - who nobody outside Edinburgh will have heard of, but as an utterly committed pacifist he spent his entire life in austere poverty rather than oppress anyone. He was never the most brilliant fiddler around but everything he played he did with feeling. (And the fiddles he made are wonderful).
