Trad String Instruments on Youtube

Post by Rob Sharer »

Had to happen sooner or later...let's start a thread for Youtube vids featuring traditional string instruments.

Here's my opening salvo, my band Craicdown at the R.A, Fountain General Store in Fountain, NC, this past weekend:

Tell us something.: I've been making whistles since 2010 in my tiny workshop at my home. I've been playing whistle since teenage times.

thanks for starting this thread Rob!

Here is Andy Statman Trio with David Grisman playing Flatbush Waltz

I like Andy Statman's Flatbush Waltz, good to see it played by the man himself!
Not Irish trad, but modern Klezmer, so maybe should not be here!
Here is Flatbush Waltz played by the David Munnelly Band, only a pity they go straight into a fast reel (Killarney Boys Of Pleasure ):

Ann Heymann playing Planxty Cruit on the wire-strung harp (sadly, none of the pics are of wire harps...well, other than those that depict images of the Trinity harp):

Siobhan Peoples and Murty Ryan playing "The Leipzig Waltz" on TG4:

As a sidebar, my head appears under the TG4 insignia in the upper right-hand corner at the 1:15 mark. Look around the crowd and you might make out Yvonne Casey and a few others besides.

Paul is also a crackerjack fiddle player.
