I have been leading sessions for the past 6 years and have been telling people, as I was taught, that vibrato, harmony and counter melodies are not accepted in Traditional Irish sessions. Lately, the idea of vibrato in sessions has been challenged. I have noticed that professional fiddlers at times do use vibrato in sessions and others even play harmony or counter melodies in open sessions. My question to this community is: Do you use vibrato during your Traditional Irish music sessions? How do you feel about folks using occasional vibrato as an ornamentation to dress up a tune?

Great reply, Larry. I appreciate your input.

You explain very nicely why the professionals sometimes use vibrato and harmony in open sessions and advanced sessions. I will look to see what others suggest and then take the most wisdom and share with my fellow session players. Thanks for your time and effort to comment.

P.S. I have ordered a set of pipes and appreciate your comments on such.
