Alistair was kind enough to play his concertina over my wife´s belly, when my eldest daughter was still in the womb about two months before she was born.

Amazingly she doesn´t have a musical note in her body!

Clearly nature rather than nuture I´d say.

Mind he is wearing well for 58.

An inspiration as a musician in his own right, and all the more so for his work with Folkworks (we need Folkworks-equivalents the whole world 'round).

Happy! indeed (Thank you, Abby). And Happy Birthday to one of those who make the music live.
