Music of The Fiddle - Vol 5

34 Great tunes played by Ron Gonnella on the fiddles of Gow, Marshall and Skinner.

The Skinner fiddle is the ‘Stroh’ early acoustic recording fiiddle.

Track 8

I can’t help noticing that there’s no link showing for track 8 on the details page, although it is on the site, as ‘Niel Gow’s lament for his second wife’, here:
https://thesession.org/tunes/1892

That’s been corrected, by an unseen hand ….

The Late Ron

Ron Gonnella was a great fiddle player and a gentleman.I was sorry to hear of his death.
