"Tonight on BBC1 at 11.55pm, there's a very funny film called "The Boys And A Girl From The County Clare", about 2 brothers who have ceili bands competing against each other in a competition. The opening credits have the brothers being taught the fiddle as children, and the fiddler is Dick Glasgow, who used to play in Aberdeen sessions, and in a couple of bands with me in the 1980s. Older "SC&T" members might remember him. The language is a bit fruity at times, so if you're easily offended, don't watch, but otherwise, set the DVD player."
