Bill's instruments and sound gear - this time, with pictures
On 11 April the BIB published details of instruments and sound equipment being sold by Bill Whelan, doyen of old-time music in Ireland. Now, thanks to Alice Toner (without whom the BIB would not have begun) we can reproduce the photos supplied by Eamonn Quigley. Here again are the details of each item.
