Fiddler Fleming


A great day in Co. Durham talking with Loanhead born fiddler Chuck Fleming. So many stories of fiddling in the revival and deep thoughts on the art and meaning of traditional fiddle playing.

Fiddling in Copshieholm in the 1970s


Yet more photographs from the fiddle sessions at the Newcastleton Folk Festival have surfaced and will be added to this blog before long. A special favourite is this portrait by Christine Hoy of Border fiddler Tam Hughes and friend listening in to the music.
