"The Session is the Main site for irish sheet music period. A lot of useful info like i.ex. on recordings of tunes (cd etc.) This in my opinion is far more important that the sheet music itself. Irish music is so much about intonation and personal…"
I play some fiddle, and am trying to learn Mandolin. I also would like to meet other fiddle players. I had a terrible time trying to find a fiddle teacher in my area. I could find all kinds of violin (classical) teachers. Any way I have been playing off and on for about 5 years.
I enjoy a wide range of music, but I listen and play Celtic the most. You will find Classical (not Opera), Bluegrass, Country, Rock, Some Heavy Metal, In my CD collection.
That's great! I met the glassmen during their Euro-tour. We travelled for 2,5 hours to see the Glassmen rehearse. It was pretty cool. gave us some great insights in what was possible concerning rehearsals. In comparison, our rehearsals would look very unorderly. and their performance was outstanding.
Well, you never know where future might lead us... so, See you!
i took violin lessons in elementary school but never was good enough at it to continue it beyond that ....my grandfather was a very good fiddle player but none of his musical talent came my way....alas....check out celticspringband on their website...they do Irish fairs in the states...they live in canada...
i hope you have listened to Celtricspringband on my page....they play the violin beautifully...the 13 year old sister to the older girl that starts this number has even written several pieces for the fiddle...
