The fiddle has been popular in Scotland for over 500 years as an
accompanying instrument for dance and song. Bonnie Rideout has been
playing traditional Scottish fiddle music since the 1980s. This
collection presents favorite tunes which Bonnie had stashed away
over the years while awaiting the perfect opportunity to record
them. The music written here ranges from J. Scott Skinner's "Dr.
Gordon Stable" (a wonderful fiery reel she once played to garner
her first national fiddling title as a young teenager), to "Fear A
Bhata" (a heartbreaking air she has known as long as she can
remember). These Scottish fiddle selections have been carefully
transcribed from Bonnie's recording "Scottish Fire." It would be
impossible to write down all her bowings and every grace note,
especially since they are not always consistent from one playing to
the next. Readers should use this book as a basis for exploring
their own voice within the music. This package includes the CD.
