Some good traditional (Irish) fiddle recordings:
Martin Hayes (New/1st) is excellant, I like Colliers/Johnny's Wedding (last trk)
BC Fiddle Fest/My Love is America(?) great gathering of fiddlers
Sean Keane's Jig it in style
Kevin Burke while with The Bothy Band 'Live in Paris' is great stuff
along with Matt Molloy, Paddy Keenan, Donal Lunny and Micheal/Triona
