GUEST,Mr Red Folklore: The One-Armed Fiddler (34) RE: Folklore: The One-Armed Fiddler 12 Jul 11


Mary Anderson who duetted with Ken Brown in the early 90's.

I first saw her play harp with a metal grip and triangle of metal (ish) to pluck with. In the Flying Cloud Folk Club at Tir na Nog, Toronto in the mid 80's. By the time she was touring with Ken she had a more hand like prosthetic which apparently used a a battery every performance. She lost her hand in a car accident as a teenager before she could drive.

She was very good too. So was Ken but he wasn't as pretty.
