Welcome. Two things straight off: ditch the sheet music; and ditch the set bowing patterns. Go to Ireland and really listen to good trad players, and watch them closely to see how they're producing the sounds they do.

I agree. Another way to see some good players might be to check out some of the local Irish festivals for some of the bigger names. Might be a good place to start if coming over to Ireland isn't in the foreseeable future. And it would certainly cost less :) .
