Please keep your eyes open for Pat Quinn's recently-stolen instruments. Here's more info from Pat:  Friends,Last night after a gig on the North side of Chicago my vehicle was vandalized and broken into. All of my instruments and gear were stolen. All I really care about is the customized instruments. If anyone hears or know of anyone trying to sell or trade the following, please contac...t me. My 19 fret custom made David Boyle tenor banjo, made in Ireland for me in 2009. It has a blonde maple neck and resonator, a Fishman Rare Earth pickup installed and 1/4 jack below the tail piece for plug in. Also stolen, my Patrick Olwell, blackwood keyless D flute with a wooden mouthpiece cut for a left handed player. A Michael Burke low F aluminum whistle, a Thin Weasel blackwood D whistle made by George Schultz.The flute and Thin Weasel whistle were in a custom wooden flute case made by Aidan O’Toole. The rest of the gear was in a black nylon duffle bag. The banjo and flute were in a black nylon soft shelled gig-bag case.Any help or insight would be much appreciated.Thanks,Pat Quinn

That is heartbreaking, my fingers are crossed for you recovering those instruments.

Stupid question, but have you checked out the local pawn shops, friend of mine did that and got

most of his things back, police couldn't be bothered.

That really sucks! Good luck - I've posted it on facebook - the music family is very small so maybe someone will have heard something.

Yes, this is a dreadful thing to happen to any musician.

Even worse, to think that a musician would stoop so low as to steal another musician's instrument, knowing only too well, how much they mean to us.

Like you Saskia, I posted the info on The Irish Tenor Banjo Website & Facebook Wall.

Hope you hear some good news .... SOON!



Does anyone know whether Pat got his instruments back?
