Weekly Quiz: 2015 #4

RESULTS:  Michele Lopez, Denny Dobry, Margie Deck and Sheila Holtgrieve all got the usual answer of Paganini, who played on a single E string.  However, Michele Lopez “Reggie” also added the oft-overlooked Canonical reference to Charlie Peace in ILLU. Charlie was a real criminal who appeared on stage with a one-string violin act. He can be found in Tracy’s Encyclodpedia Sherlockiana and in Wikipedia. Congratulations all!
