The Quiet Man

Another one of Jim Sutherland’s.

an extremely beautiful one!

This was written about John Martin the fiddler who played in Ossian and the Easy Club around that time. He’s not really that quiet or he wouldn’t have joined the Tannahill Weavers. 🙂
A really nice guy though and a fine musician.
