A Fiddler in the House

Last week, Joe played in a short recital at his teacher's house. She's been teaching him some fiddle tunes, which are a lot of fun to listen to.

I've been wanting to post the videos ever since, but we've had one technical difficulty after another. At first we couldn't find any movies on our new computer after downloading them from the camera. Then blogger wouldn't upload them. David managed to post one on YouTube for me, but the other won't even play on our machine any more. Argh!

Anyway, this is Joe and a fellow student playing "Soldier's Joy", an American Fiddle tune, with Mr. M, his teacher's husband, accompanying them on guitar. I will keep trying to put up the other movie, because it's a medley of three Irish songs which I enjoy even more.

I listen to this song often because I just love to see and hear Joseph play. Today Finn is standing at my knee listening and asking over and over again to hear it repeatedly. He is convinced that the other musician is Anthony and I must admit, he does look like him. Go, Joe, go!
Love,
Mimi

Who are the greatest musicians here in Ireland?
The government because they love the fiddle.

It is a joy to play an instrument.
