Cold Hand

Mike Leech busks by playing the fiddle bare fingered along King Street Tuesday.  He said he has been playing the fiddle for 40 years, even after he was diagnosed in Grade 7 as being deaf in the high registers.  "You can really express yourself with the fiddle.  Like today.  It's cold (plays All the Leaves Are Brown.)" What's the difference between the fiddle and a violin.  "The nut at the end of the bow," he said.  "You don't spill beer on a violin."
