Playing with Spirit

Posted by Marc Metzger on Sunday, August 1, 2010

I cannot watch this video enough.  Chris Perry (aka Peakfiddler) is a delight to see - he plays from his heart, and it is reflected in his style.  It is something that, as a classically-trained and orchestra-raised teen violinist, was a no-no for us.  We strove for synchronicity in sound and motion, which I suppose is just as much a part of an orchestral performance as the music is.  I am only beginning to lose that "serious" style that I gew up with in the three or so years that I have been fiddling.  I hope that I can be as free one day in fiddling as Chris is.
