Subject: RE: Liverpool 1962 Folk Music Epiphany
I grew up listening to folk music, my uncle Donald Jackson played mandolin, he was very good and very eclectic, Donalds brother Jimmy played the highland pipes, he most often played for the dancers at the local highland games at Luss in Dunbartonshire, I was always fascinated by the ability of both these men, Donald was going to teach me to play the mandolin but he died young and I didn't get the chance.

I did learn to play the mandolin [ and tenor banjo ] eventually, I will forever be grateful to both of these men for inspiring to take up playing.
