First of all, hi everyone. I'm a new traditional fiddle student, at 47 years of age. It seems my current mid-life crisis, could not afford a Ferarri so, I opted to buy and learn Irish Fiddle instead. I've been playing for about 6 or 7 months now and am soaking up everything I can about the instrument and the art. Recently, I was invited to play at a Hiberian Hall Dance and was privelidged to meet a professional fiddler by the name of Padraig Dolan. He was over here for the season (on an artist's visa) and has since returned to Ireland. Padraig took me under his wing, for the short time of our aquaintance and passed along both of these resources:
Both have a great number of links to browse and while my current instructor is classical, they have been a great resource to me. I hope that one or both of these will be of some help to anyone.
