Frequently Asked Questions...

Are there any othe violin/fiddle-centric songs similar to "the Butterfly" by Celtic Woman?


Best Answer...

Answer:

Yes, there's basically the entire Celtic genre, as well as other several other folk music cultures. I suspect you'd enjoy the work of the fiddler Eileen Ivers; here's a similar slow tune: http://youtu.be/30-sITzM-CM , though it's more fun to watch her tear it up: http://youtu.be/AQHJltH4c6k .

Celtic Woman, in my experience, is a little heavy on the "woman" and light on the "Celtic," so you may enjoy some of the more pop-oriented bands like Capercaillie ( http://youtu.be/dmb1c4ovPs4 , http://youtu.be/rDZF3u-Rqx4 --although it doesn't come in at first, the violin does carry those tracks; or http://youtu.be/iOwNywD82S0 in which it shares melody with whistle and pipes).

You might also, like me, enjoy Scandinavian fiddle traditions: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=102189224 --watch the video; http://youtu.be/tWorsJwzycw; or even http://youtu.be/SiRaUjqrJxE !
