French Fiddle Tunes
Renowned fiddle player and arranger, Chris Haigh, presents this fantastic survey of French Fiddle Tunes with over 100 pieces, exploring the variety of traditional fiddle music throughout the country.
French fiddle music is certainly not as famous as Ireland, Scotland, Romania and Hungary, yet it is as rich a tradition as you could wish for, with a healthy modern revival in interest, and thriving performance and dance scene.
Moreover the tunes and techniques are surprisingly fascinating and exotic. The repertoire is packed with unique dance forms, crooked tune structures, unusual and exotic modes, and non tempered scales.
This fantastic collection also includes live performances by Chris Haigh.
