Blackberry Festival Footrace

This was composed by David Fisher from the United Kingdom. Hanneke Cassel does a very good job of playing it, and this can be seen (heard) on YouTube.

This tune is amazing.. and the interpretation of Hanneke Castle is so full of feelings..

Re: Blackberry Festival Footrace

For the ones who practiced this tune, can you give me any advice on the bowing, especially for the third part ? I try to follow Cassel but her bowing on the video posted by Bryce previously is difficult to see for me (she’s going too fast). What notes do you accentuate more than others ? Which ones do you link and which ones do you play separately ?

Thanks a lot
