Thread Name: Fiddling At Its Best
Subject: RE: Fiddling At Its Best
I've played fiddle for many years and sing many different kinds of songs although it's true that for the last few years I've concentrated on sea shanties.

I really like the Clare style of Irish fiddling.

My first post to this thread was really a reaction to the spate of "best of ..." threads on Mudcat. I mean, why can't you say "Great Cape Breton fiddling" instead of "Fiddling at its best"? The "best" threads ignore or belittle the existance of other styles.
