Kirk Starkey discovered the cello when he was 7 years
old, and has never been far from one since. Currently he plays on a
mysterious 18th century beauty from somewhere in Bohemia.
Besides teaching music at Mohawk College, Starkey composes, produces,
writes for television and film, and is a member of the esteemed group
Quartetto Gelato. He has even restored old 911 calls to help police
solve cold cases. Kirk Starkey's remarkable life gives new meaning
to the concept of pulling strings to make your way in the world.
