Pretty much any Lindsey Strirling, Scala, or Bond.  OK, so the girls are hot, but their violin playing is exceptional.

Ditto on Lindsey Stirling.  I just recently discovered her Youtube videos while randomly browsing for violin stuff.  I particularly like the work she did with Peter Hollen on Skyrim, and her Lord of the Rings Medley.  Very refreshing to see young folk doing something other than pop and run-of-the-mill hip-hop.

Thats how I found Lindsey as well as the group Bond.  Yes, that is one I particularly like as well.  Would really like to see them perform in my area one day. 

There is another Venessa-May who I ran across on YouTube as well.  She did an exceptional job with Toccata & Fugue which I had only heard with just a pipe organ (E. Power Briggs performing) when I was young.

The current music is mostly rubbish...

I am not so much a fan of Lindsey Stirling. While I see she is clearly comfortable, relaxed and flexible etc, I find her body movements over the top and quite off-putting. With the few I've seen I would prefer to hear it and not see it. I do like the videos themselves, ie camera work and editing and all that.

Violin Making - The Fiddler (1975) - Rare Film
This is great, he seems to make the whole fiddle with a pen knife.

There are so many!  I'll post two of my favorites.
The first is from a group in Canada called Kleztory with violinist Elvira Misbakhova, called the Violin Doina:

The second is Frankie Gavin's version of Fox Hunter's Reel:

This is my fave at the moment. I've been trying to play Johnny Sunshine (the second tune in the set) for about 5 years after hearing it played on a Liz Doherty recording. I can do all of it and most of it fast but I find the C part (as at 3:02 & 3:43) fiendishly hard to do at high speed, it's one of those finger twisters.  So it's nice to see the lady who wrote the tune play it to try to get some tips on the fingering. I only wish I had a way to slow mo it!  The trick seems to be to flick that first finger out of the way while keeping the second and third locked down. We'll see...... :)

I enjoyed watching the "Transatlantic Sessions" series.  Excellent musicians and some great fiddle tunes.  I would rather watch Youtube than most regular TV shows.

What would you say those facial expressions mean there with that gal playing Johnny Sunshine? This is something I've been puzzling over for a while. The violist playing Pletnev's viola concerto
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JW25ajISypw&list=PL773F180AE7593BF2> also makes some wild accusations with his eyebrows. Could it be something like how people hold their tongue out when they poke a beehive with a stick?

I have a terrible habit of playing along with my eyebrows. Usually mirroring the shape of the tune. In my case its unintentional.

I think the last long laser-eyed look over at her hubby  means "I'm gonna finish it this time so make sure you do as well buddy!
The rolling eyes at the beginning are probably "why did I pick something so kid-easy to play in front of all these people, I really need a challenge".
I've met her a couple of times and she's one of the most helpful people and one of the best teachers you could ever meet.

This is a nice relaxed sound, and I love the mix of fiddle and harp. I love Sheila's playing, and yet I feel that one day I could aspire to this sound - well, maybe if I could relax a little more!  :)

Apologies if it's been posted already. It was recommended on another fiddle site.

This is one I just discovered today; again, sorry if someone's already linked to it. But what a lovely child - what infectious glee - and how talented! (Julia Voris, the Pennsylvania Fiddle Champion.)

She plays fiddle on the CD for the Session Tunes Blue Book.  I like her playing on the CD, but have never heard her play otherwise.
