To Liam Devlin
A true story but off the subject. I once had the honour to present Liam O'Flynn at my small but Freindly Folk Festival, and i announced him perfectly remembering all the credits and honours due this top Irish piper. Then in front of a rapt Irish Audience I said "now please give a wonderfull Guernsey welcome to LIAM DEVLIN" amidst the horrified silence Liam was heard to say, "you read too many Jack Higgins Books" and my Embarrassment was complete. A Great talent and a gentleman also.
