My offering is neither fiddle nor violin... quite often I get my inspiration from other strings or horns
Giovanni Sollima, cellist & composer - beautiful/complex music & a cool video to boot

 I've only recently learned how to navigate youtube somewhat, and I haven't viewed that many violin videos, but I think this one is pretty cool.

I am absolutely dumbfounded. It just dawned on me that there are 4 pages of these in here. Some of this stuff is just incredible. it's..it's..ok..ok..I've got a word for it. floccinaucinihilipilificated. How some people can play these little 4 stringed miracles so well is totally beyond my comprehension, no kidding.

I've obviously missed out on a LOT by not exposing myself (or possibly not having access) to this kind of thing.

Now I'm gonna hafta go thru all these vids. Just not enough hours in the day.

one of my faves....got pointed towards it when I wanted to hear the tune to play it for melodeon.net tune of the month.
It was the point where I thought I'll never get that 'expression' into the melodeon.

Here's Truman Price. This man has been fiddling (and singing and dancing and calling squares) since about 1910 I guess. He holds it low, claims this is how it used to be played. Here's St. Anne's Reel:

looks more 'logical' to me.

This is my other favorite vid because I like the box and fiddle combination.
And seeing it up close thought...maybe I could have a go at learning the fiddle.
Plus it gets my foot tapping ever time.

Mary-Martha Jackson, one to watch out for... She did an awesome show all last summer at Nauvoo. My old cam ran out of battery at the wrong moment; fortunately, someone else posted a better capture. She's just fun to watch, what with all the clowning around and the fantastic playing

This last starts slow (I think it's part of building the incredible audience rapport) Kicks into high gear about 0:58

The Mormons were run out of several places in the early 1800's, and they tried settling a swamp that nobody else wanted, called the place Nauvoo. It got to be larger than Chicago for a while. Then they were run out of there and went west to Salt Lake. Now that times have changed, the church has bought back some of the land in Nauvoo and is slowly reconstructing the place as a historical exhibit, designed to entertain and educate tourists on vacation. There are several days worth of things to see - general store, drugstore, print shop, Brigham Young's house, craft exhibits and demos, horse-drawn "tour buses" etc. plus they put on several shows daily as you see there. Mormon kids (teens, and grandparents too) come and staff the exhibits and shows. They also have performers come and play, like bagpipe groups, etc; anything related to "old timey" in general. A couple of other churches that tie into this history have exhibits there also, plus the old town itself that survived after the Mormons left. It's pretty fun. My daughter did this last summer, played trumpet in the brass band.

that was a wonderful blast from the past! The "Hot Licks" haven't crossed my mind for a number of years, I must say. I just wonder why these people are laughing. I take good swing very seriously  :o

What great videos! Thanks for posting them.

Here is my addition. This is a video of a friend of mine, James Strauss (flute virtuouso and last student of Rampal). This piece was written especially for him. There is a string orchestra accompanying him (Israeli, I forgot which one. And, he's Brazilian, not Israeli) and all the instruments are Strads and Guarnerius.

Sorry this is very bad example of an overactive ego but I'm posting my own vid

However I am quite proud of it, an absolutely terrifying gig and I survived!

Yeah - love it. The interesting thing is how tense you look until you break into "you" - the comfort zone I guess, and brilliant it is too :)
