Traditional Irish Music
Mairéad Hickey is the winner of eight All Ireland Fiddle Championships and at the age of 16 she has created her own App for smart phones that is now available for purchase on iTunes. She began learning the traditional Irish fiddle just before she turned 3 and has started to compile a database of tunes that you can now start to learn on this smart little App. It's called Irish Fiddler and we downloaded it and tried it out.
While it has a limited number of tunes at the moment it will no doubt grow with time. As on most tutorial videos she plays the tunes at normal and slow tempos so you can get to learn them. The attached video give a good flavor for what is involved. It costs less than €2 at the moment and if you are a beginner on Irish Fiddle it may be of interest.
