"English Fiddle Listening Suggestions? "
Twenty of years ago I would have said "earplugs"
We wre having a pint one night in a Wimbledon pub when a bunch of fiddlers walked in, asked the governor if it was ok to play and, for the next hour or so, were highly entertained with some very fine, mainly English fiddle playing - not the same as the Irish music we have come to know and love, but certainly as enjoyable when played well
Personally, I go for the North Eastern English style of playing, and, in all cases, a reasonable, not-too-fast pace, but that's me
