Speaking of holding the fiddle a different way, a different kind of fiddle altogether called a dilruba

I'm fiddler over there.  My son turned me on to Eluveitie thinking I would like Evocation 1 and it's become one of my favorite albums.  Can't wait for the 2nd one! 

Now I see that you played viola on Gobanno, otherwise known as Julia Delaney!  It's slower tempo than I'm used to playing it for contra dances but very nice indeed.

That wouldn't be you third from the left in the picture would it?

I seem to have forgotten how to post youtube vids, just getting the link posted.

I see! You're not so active on Elu's forum - well it has become a kind of nice but rather closed little community, they hardly discuss the band anymore :-).
No that girl in the picture is Linda Suter .  She left Eluveitie shortly after the second record before the band's career really lifted off (the photograph in the video you posted is much older than the recording of Gobanno/Julia Delaney's). Today she is playing as a duo with a singer/songwriter, more kind of jazzy stuff. She is a very creative musician but she never really was into the "celtic", nor the "Metal" thing.
I used to play in a rather obscure and experimental folk band together with her as well as Meri, Chrigel and Päde who are members of Eluveitie today (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DiVgeRFIUw# - I'm the dark-haired one in the middle of the band photo which appears arond 0:40  ). We had a great time but that band never really developed very far musically, and after a while Chrigels attention was increasingly taken up with Eluveitie, which didn't help our project...
But there was never a question of me playing in Eluveitie as a band member so i never made it onto a photograph or into a video. to be honest when they started it i was very sceptical about it.
When they went for an "acoustic" album (well it's not that acoustic, nor "trad", is it) i got invited to play on "Gobanno" and "Within the grove". I like the second one better, and you can hear more of me :-) I really really like Evocation I and when their most recent record (Everything remains as it never was) came out i really became a fan of their music too - before that, it was more kind of "wow, my friends are getting more and more successful with their music, isn't that amazing". I'm really happy for them that it worked out so well.

I really like violinists who stretch the boundaries of the instrument.  My favorite is a new group called "Infinitus."  It's a string trio that beatboxes while they play.  Check out one of their vids here: http://youtu.be/5Z9p8-Gdy7k

This will be my first post (I just joined today). Been in love with "Celtic Music" ever since Riverdance came out. Ive been a listener for 15+ years ... I love watching these videos because they keep me inspired, focused and motivated -- because for my "mid-life crisis" I decided to pick up the fiddle at 40 y/o and be a participant instead of just a fan . 10 months later and Im loving it.

Heres my contribution to this list. It is Irish Fiddler -Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh- he is playing the hardanger fiddle here (i believe). This video is my favorite of FIVE you can watch on YouTube.

Without a shadow of a doubt, this:

MARK WOOD - "BACH DOUBLE" on the Stingray SV4

I'm a big fan of classical and stadium rock, so this is like a glimpse of Heaven to me.

I'm also a forum newbie.   :D  Nice to meet you all.

hey Howie, I've had the same problem for close to a year (forum members cheer) couldn't post thru google chrome at work. But now back on line at home, can post thru Internet explorer (forum members sigh in resignation). I aint too swift with computers, but all I do is copy the Utoob vid address from the top of the screen and paste it into the post. The link appears, and when posted, the vid magically appears (at least most of the time anyways I think)

In celebration I posted my favourite Captain Beefheart tune.... no comment. Seems there may not be a lot of Beefheart fans on the forum :P ;D

Thanks bluesviolin, I use chrome so I'll try a different browser and see what happens.

I used Firefox and it worked like you said.

Y'know, I haven't liked all the music that's been posted here. But I've liked most of it. I've learned a lot. What would be the point of whining about what I didn't like, or even singling out someone for special thanks? I thank EVERYONE for contributing to this thread, and other threads also. If in doubt, post! I can page down thru what doesn't lift me higher.

That Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh video makes me want to start saving my nickels for a hardanger. So fine
