Re: Colin Farrell??

yes I know Colin. He is not the actor, but indeed a great fiddle player and composer (and friend I reckon…are you reading this Colin?) from the Manchester scene (McGoldrick, John Joe Kelly, etc.). Did the MA in Irish Music in Limerick with me. Writes great tunes and is now playing with Grada. Another one of his tunes can be found on Kevin Crawfords 2nd solo album, its called "The First Pint".
