of these players, their style is influenced by pipes (at least at times)
There is an excellent catalog that I received after joining the "Scottish
The catalog has books of fiddling music (harp, piano, guitar, etc). It has
in print and some fine out of print collections. You can get CD's, tapes,
videos covering Scottish, Irish, Cape Breton.....

You also should listen directly to Great Highland Bagpipe music as that was
certainly an important influence in Scottish fiddling. My favorite is the
Simon Fraser University Pipe Band.
Thank you for the opportunity for me to rectify a glaring omission on my

find out here are Irish sessions, and though I like that music as well, I
want to concentrate strongly on Scottish fiddling.
