We attended a Scottish fiddle concert, featuring the Northwest Scottish Fiddlers What joy! From the sweet six-year-old girl who fiddled and danced with her parents and 9-year-old sister to the teens whose fingers flew over the strings of their violins, cello and double bass (and one amazing keyboardist) to the adults who'e been at this for years, it was a foot-tapping, hand-clapping, smiling time!
In honor of their great music and all the fun to be had when soaking in Scottish fiddle music, I offer you this video.
It's just a tiny taste. If you like the music of Alasdair Fraser, you might enjoy the Legacy of the Scottish Fiddle CD. And you might mark your calendar for January 17-19, 2014, when the Northwest Scottish Fiddlers hold their annual Scottish Music Workshop at Ft Casey Conference Center, With Aladsair Fraser and Natalie Haas as instructors. I'm looking forward to attending their final concert!
