Subject: RE: violin from Shackleton's floorboards
Here is SHACKLETON, by Paul Jarman and sung here by "Young Voices of Melbourne" in 2004 :

This is the Leonard Hussey, banjoist, song that Guest, Henryp linked to above from Song from Rustic Roots retreat!

And THIS (as again linked by Guest Henryp above), is an Edison Blue Amberol Cylinder recording of "The Ballad of Tom Crean" recorded circa 1918 by fellow crew members of the Endurance expedition lead by Ernest Shackleton!!!

The Story of Tom Crean, Pt 1 (in both English and Gaelic) :
PLAYLIST - The orchestral soundtrack by Adrian Johnston for the 2-part UK television series Shackleton (2002), directed by Charles Sturridge and starring Kenneth Branagh.

Re Irish band Difference Engine - me too, Voyager!
