A Great Master... 
The first fiddler in this video is Caoimhin O Raghallaigh- a great, great master of the art. Here he is playing "Rolling in the Rye Grass," a well-known session tune.

He knows exactly where the tune is, and plays the tune. He doesn't overplay his hand. There are a lot of little variations - it's never the same way twice, because he knows the tune inside and out.

The second group of youngsters, Erris, is very skilled, but not quite my cup of tea. But O Raghallaigh, to my ear, is breathtaking.

Don't miss his brilliant album with Mich O Brian, Kilty Lie Over.

Tulg a mach,
