Eamon Harkin has been a musician for nine years now. A self-taught musician, he bares his soul on the streets of Derry. My conversation with this talented young musician was well worth the five-pound donation I added to his slim collection of coins. We chatted about music and I questioned him about his music preferences. When I asked him if he liked the group ‘Mumford and Sons’, he explained he preferred Irish music and named a couple of good Irish musicians</i> including Van Morrison, The Smiths and The Frames.
