William Gardiner in Hull - 1790
from Music and Society in Eighteenth-Century Yorkshire, pages 124-125:
Hull was the most unmusical place I ever visited (c. 1790). I attended a concert given by Mons. Aldy the celebrated violinist. Scarcely more than half a dozen persons were present, and so few professors resided in the place that a violoncello performer could not be found to accompany him; this part was wretchedly performed by a man upon the bassoon.
