Post subject:  Trad String Instruments on Youtube

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:

That might be a new Land Speed Record for stickification!



Meanwhile, here's my bud Dave Shapiro playing a bouzouki he made:

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):

Cynthia Cathcart play "Chanter's Tune" on the wire-strung harp:

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.
