Has anyone on the Session ever come across a descriptive fiddle solo called the drunken fiddler?
It came up in conversation over the weekend, one of my mates mentioned he saw a fiddler playing this piece at a small gig in scotland a good few years ago. He said the fiddler began playing a tune out-of tune as though he were intoxicated and then turned it into a hornpipe.
It brought up a small discussion about descriptive pieces for different instruments, not duelling banjo’s!!!!, more like the fox chase on pipes or steam train on harmonica.
Any one know anything about the drunken fiddler?
As opposed to knowing drunken fiddler’s before someone mentions it ! 😉
Any info would be great.
Thanks in advance.
