This has nothing to do with OKOM, however, I am interested in locating an
Irish fiddler to play at a wedding reception (my daughter's) at Berkeley
Castle (near Bristol) in August.  We have found various groups in the area,
but not a loan fiddler.  If anyone knows of someone in the area, or where we
might search on the internet for someone traustworthy, please let me know by
private email.

Hi Jim et al,

Sorry I can't help with the lone fiddler, but the UK is awash with loan fiddlers. You'll find hundreds in the Yellow Pages under "Bankers." I'll contact a journalist pal who is very well connectred in the UK folk music scene to see if he knows anyone suitable. If he doesn't he'll almost certainly know someone who does.
