Thread Name: EFDSS Role in the 21st Century
Subject: RE: EFDSS Role in the 21st Century
COMHALTAS recently brought out two books by David Lyth, of munster and sligo fiddler players.with bowing marked to give an idea of styles.David lyth had the brilliant idea of slowing recordings of traditional fiddle players down to 16 rpm,by hearing where the gaps were in the music he could discernthe bowing patterns. Ithink these two books are useful. The same thing could be done with english tradional and revival players, such as Stephen Baldwin Jinky Wells Dave Swarbrick, this is a way efdss could pursue their aims by giving an indication of stylesin book form , the same could be done in Scotland with players such as Farquar Macrae, and Angus Grant senior and junior.
