Fiddle Fun!

 We took a rare Wednesday afternoon drive to New York for a fiddle lesson yesterday. Haley's teacher, Brian, was being interviewed by a film crew from Ireland for a documentary on the Sligo fiddle masters. He had some of his students play with him for part of the recording.

It was very interesting to see how filming works...retakes for different camera angles, difficulties getting rid of outside noises, lighting, etc... The interview was really interesting. We can't wait to see the finished product.

The film crew also went to Brian's session at Dunne's Pub to get some of the session on the recording. It was a very busy night at Dunne's. I think they could double the size of the pub and it might still be crowded.

There was a great group of musicians playing! Haley had a great time and did not want to leave. I had to get her to pack up when it got so late we wouldn't get home until almost 1am after our almost 3 hour drive home...some of us have to work in the mornings.
