Episode 80: Hale be Your Heart! Hale Be Your Fiddle!


Upcoming Events: July 30-August 4 – guest teacher at the Jink and Diddle School of Scottish Fiddling in Banner Elk, NC, August 10 – memorial tribute concert for luthier Carl Becker in Chicago, August 17 and 18 – Paganini 24 Caprices at the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, IL


Inquiries from my Inbox:  Catherine from Australia writes: “Could you do a podcast on the features that Paganini brought to the world of violin playing? What is it that he did differently that challenged the status quo?” Emily asks: “Have you ever played the Conus violin concerto? I never heard of it until my teacher suggested it for me to play, I instantly fell in love with it and am really enjoying practicing it! I wanted to know why not as many violinists play this concerto anymore.”


Random Musical Thought: Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could magically hear some of the great repertoire again for the very first time?


Main Topic: A conversation with master Scottish fiddler Dr. John Turner. Includes recordings of “Panmure House / Timour the Tartar” from “Favourite Scotch Measures” and “Lament for the Death of King George V” from “The Wanderer’s Lament: Fiddle Music of Scotland.” For more information about the Jink and Diddle School of Scottish Fiddling, please visit www.jinkdiddle.com.
