  • My Grandfather Patrick Welch emigrated with his family to the USA. They settled in Great Barrington MA, where Albert Spalding's family had a summer home. Patrick Welch was an accomplished Irish Fiddler who apparently spent a great amount of time paying with the arguably the world's best violinist of his day, Albert Spalding. My father told me numerous stories about my Grandmother sending bike riding children to the Spalding home to tell Patrick it was late and time to come home! One can imagine how those interactions unfolded and if Patrick and Albert stopped playing and called it a night.
