I've been listening to a lot of fiddle music recently: new and old, Irish and Scottish, and several other kinds. I was listening to Altan and Fidil yesterday, from the concert which ended the Frankie Kennedy Winter School: but that's not the sort of Northern fiddle music I want to tell you about here. The music I was listening to today comes from much further north than Donegal,…Continue

We haven't done a full review yet and will do so shortly. Daniel Neely in a recent article in The Irish Echo said…Continue

I'm an expert in Ceilidh and Feis music, and enjoy playing for Irish Dancing.
For 30 years, I have studied 18th and 19th century secular dance music and song of Europe and the UK. As a musicologist and historian, I am very interested in how these styles of music influenced American music and American culture. I use this as a basis for The Sweet Method, my own method of teaching all ages how to play beautiful music for any age.
