Old Time Fiddling
I know this is an ITM community, for the most part, but is anyone into old time fiddling, specifically maritime fiddling? I hear that some of the boys in Nova Scotia really stay away from most of the Celtic stuff and have a genre all to their own. If you listen to a lot of Ashley MacIsaac or Natalie MacMaster, you’ll know what I’m talking about (although they both stray into the Celtic).
My great-grandfather was an old time fiddler and I’d love to be able to learn some of those old songs to carry on his legacy. I’ve searched for a few of them on here without luck. Does anyone know of any links or websites that might have such a thing?
The other thing I could do is search out some of his old cassette tapes. They must be in someone’s basement.
Wait a fair wind and you’ll get one.
