This week we started work on a new polka called Many A Wild Night. You can find a good example of this in this video. For practicing, you can use the recording I posted below.
Also, this week we listened to some recordings of some great Irish fiddle players. Martin Hayes, a fiddle player from County Claire and Sean Keane from Dublin who plays with the Cheiftains.
This week, I want everyone to watch a video from either one of these fiddle players or of an Irish musician of your choice during their times practicing. One video is enough. As part of this, copy the web address and and post it as a comment to this post. You can find a link for comments below this post on the left side.
Here is a popular jig written by Vincent Broderick. It is in a set of tunes played frequently here in Chicago! Listen to it often and play along with the recording when you practice.
