French Fiddle TunesRenowned fiddle player and arranger, Chris Haigh, presents this fantastic survey of French Fiddle Tunes with over 100 pieces, exploring the variety of traditional fiddle music found throughout the country.French fiddle music is certainly not as famous as the music from Ireland, Scotland, Romania and Hungary, yet scratch below the surface and you will find across the length and breadth of France as rich a tradition as you could wish for, with a healthy modern revival in interest, and a thriving performance and dance scene. Furthermore the tunes and techniques used are surprisingly fascinating and exotic. The repertoire is packed with unique dance forms, crooked tune structures, unusual and exotic modes, and non tempered scales.This fantastic collection also includes live recordings of each piece played by Chris Haigh.
