Scots Fiddle Festival 2013

I gave a presentation at the festival today on The Role of the Fiddle in the Scottish Folk Music Revival where I simply worked through my list of key players for the period playing examples of their music and letting the discussion take its own course. I was not surprised that many in the audience had no knowledge of several of the musicians featured and was grateful for some really useful feedback, contacts and ideas.

I’m so glad I stayed on to hear Dr Will lamb talk on his investigations and speculations on the origin of the strathspey in Scottish music. My head is full of thoughts after that and I’ll need to go an find his papers and read them in detail!
