Thanks, will be watching that later on. A couple of years ago, I found a few early field recordings of French fiddling on youtube; don't know if I saved the links or not - but there was good stuff there.

I haven’t watched the doc yet but I know the documentarian recently put out a book of French fiddle tunes which I’ve thought about picking up. I’ll definitely watch it at some point.

That's an interesting video. I actually own the author's book of French Fiddle Tunes. It's good.

I knew that the accordion had largely displaced the fiddle in France. The discussion of how the central government and institutions discouraged regional differences was thought provoking.
