Stuart Eydmann 2013 Traditional Artist in Residence

This site is being maintained and developed by Dr. Stuart Eydmann, and was established during his term as Traditional Artist in Residence 2013/14, in Celtic and Scottish Studies, University of Edinburgh.

It captures and maps information in variety of media surrounding the role of the fiddle in the Scottish folk music revival of the middle decades of the twentieth century. It is a kind of public, research scrap book.

The blog is a bit wider in content but does not stray too far from fiddle-related matters. The site is a test for a possible larger project on aspects of the instrumental traditional music revival.
