Larry Reynolds, 80; ‘virtuoso’ of Irish fiddling
Larry Reynolds emigrated from Ireland’s County Galway, bringing his fiddle and a passion for his homeland’s music. Dedicating the rest of his life to sharing that music with others, he became a mainstay of Boston’s Irish scene, helping found the Boston branch of Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann. He also hosted music sessions at pubs and programs on the radio. “Larry thought that Irish music was in a way a universal language,” said Michael Quinlin, head of the Boston Irish Tourist Association.
