The World of Irish Fiddling

Friday, March 5, 2010

Hello ,

    While there is no doubt , that I got here from Old Country and Western then Bluegrass , a few romps with Old Time and then New England

Style fiddling , and now ITM ( Irish Traditional Music .)

    I still stop an ask how did I get from hear to there ? Okay it does not matter , The journey that music has taken me in the course off 25 years has been 

the best part of my life , more then that it is a part of who I am .

    My goals very simple ,  enjoy it more each day , and cherish the friends I have made , and to keep challenging myself .

    Being Irish I feel proud , and a deep connection to ITM especially because my family can be traced back to Co. Sligo .  This may not help me 

play better , but It feels good .

    So as I build a repertoire of Reels , Jigs , Slides and all the other types of tunes . I wonder if I can sustain this obsession ?


    So what is on the list as of now :


    Down the Bow

    Bill Sullivan's Polka

    The Britches Full of Stitches

    The Butterfly

    Saddle the Pony

    The Cannaughtman's Rambles


    While I can play the first four there is still work to do 

    The last two I am still working on the notes , but they are getting there . 


    See You Soon

    John
