But there's nowhere nice - that I can find - to talk about the use of stringed instruments, especially fiddle, in ITM. You'd think there would be.


The Session - https://thesession.org/discussions/

(It's what it's about)

It's not primarily about stringed instruments, and certainly not primarily about fiddle. The other issue I find now is that the people who could play, who used to post there, don't any more. Please let's not get into specific individuals, though. :o


Re TheSession.org

Absolutely spot on! Indeed there is nothing on that site any more of interest to enthusiasts. All of the focus today is virtual, Facebook, YouTube, and the updated ABC site and far better for tunes.

As for sessions, today's are a pale shadow to the initial burst back in 90's and 00s. I don't bother with them these days... rather socialize on FB or here.

Well, people come and go. I started the fiddle group on mandolin cafe years ago - and I don't think it's been used since 2016.

I find discussion has waned on all the sites - or, I'm simply not as interested in what's being discussed.

I think mandolin cafe has a section for fiddle.

Ah. Well, I've just looked, and the only violin Facebook page I can find appears to be almost exclusively in Arabic.

Also, how would a violin Facebook group help with trad?

OK. Well, that's a different one from the one I found. It's of no use to me, but at least it isn't in Arabic.
