An excellent example of a classical violinist who can play the music 🙂 And they are Danish and Swedish by the way

No wonder. Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen (the fiddler) is member of Dreamer’s Circus, a danish swedish folkgroup.
Here’s a video from them at Tonder Festival:

No Irish folk, but fantastic playing i think.

So, IS he a classical player? To my ears, it just sounded “Scandinavian”. Maybe I have to listen again.

Re: name of this reel?

Well, he’s got a very good classical bow hold, and is playing in 3rd and 4th pos a lot of the time.

Anyway, I looked him up and I found this : “concert master of Copenhagen Philharmonic, teacher at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, violinist in the Danish String Quartet and a well known soloist in Denmark.”

Yep, sounds totally Scandinavian to me too!
