Week One – The Nineties

The artist I picked is from Cape Breton and is called ‘Ashley MacIsaac’, he was, and still is, a great traditional fiddle player. However, he also mixed traditional fiddling and tunes with punk-rock….which I loved as a teenager (and still do). Theres a biography of him here –https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashley_MacIsaac Also some links to Youtube videos…. Trad Playing
Snippet of Devil in the Kitchen
And something a bit newer
Hi, How are you today? Playlist
The tune I thought we would look at is the Hills of Glenorchy, which is track 11 on the playlist above. The sheet music is below and I’ve put a video of me playing it phrase by phrase below. Apologies if theres any noise in the background.
