[Joseph Armitage is reflecting on his years as an itinerant odd-jobsman and how ‘the south west corner of Scotland was entirely different to anything that I had experienced before’ p. 303]

 

In the English towns and cities anyone playing an instrument was regarded as something of a nuisance, in fact some towns forbade it. Some Scottish towns did likewise, notably Edinburgh.
