I am interested in what, if any, connection Boswell might have had with music - did he play an instrument? I'm trying to find out as much as I can about his musical activities (if there were any) and related interests. He writes in his Hebridean journal about singing a verse of a song in Erse, but that seems to be more focused on his abilities in the language (or the determination of a lady to teach him some) than the music itself. There are assorted other references to music, but I've seen nothing that indicates he played it himself.
But... I have a nagging half-memory of reading somewhere about Boswell playing a (?) violin, though this may be a mis-conflation with something else. Any help out there? Thanks!
