Begging pardon ahead of time since this is not related to Irish Traditional Music - OK - got that out of the way.
Does anyone here have any suggestions for sources of information about Thomas Perry - the 18th century Irish violin maker? I have already searched academic library journals to which I have access and have come up empty handed. Apparently there isn’t even agreement on the year of his death and conflicting information regarding the role of William Wilkerson in Perry’s violin building business. I am simply interested in learning about this Irish violin builder - no other agenda. Thanks.
