How to fiddle!

Now, I have to confess that I’m not a great fan of the violin – years of listening to beginners scratching away and making a sound like twenty screeching tom-cats when I was in the school orchestra put me right off it.

But I do like Stéphane Grappelli, and I’ve heard our very own Terry play a mean fiddle, so I’ve started to come round to accepting it just a tiny bit.

So when Nigel Kennedy sauntered on stage last night in the Albert Hall at « The Last Night of the Proms 2013 », wearing his Aston Villa shirt & drinking a cup of tea, I thought I’d pay attention and see what the guy could do.

Wow!  Can he mess around brilliantly with a fiddle, or what!

This is for any of you who might have missed it last night!

If you stick with it, you’ll see & hear an amazing technique. The arrangement of full of humour, passion and delicacy. Oh, and it’s completely anarchic, so if you are a purist, turn away now.

I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

See you all soon!
