This is an online fiddle lesson for the celtic tune “Apples in Winter.” See the full post at: Apples in WinterFebruary 3, 2017 at 7:17 PM #45684
I first thought you found a way to produce apples in the wintertime! Sounds good…your daughter is really a natural on the fiddle. I think I’ve heard this before…sounds vaguely familiar. One of these days I plan to get to Celtic…lots of everything you need right here. Good stuff, as always!February 3, 2017 at 9:55 PM #45688
Bravo! Your daughter was wonderful … enjoyed listening.February 4, 2017 at 8:33 AM #45692
That is nice. The tune does sound similar to something else I have heard before. Great job of playing.February 4, 2017 at 9:08 AM #45696
Thank you for another great tune, John! Arwen is very good!February 4, 2017 at 10:07 AM #45700
Wow , so beautiful, I m hooked ! Got to learn it . Arwen , you sound great ! The Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree they say :O)February 5, 2017 at 7:57 AM #45722
Haha thanks everyone. I hope to get her to crank out some more Celtic tunes for us in the near future.February 6, 2017 at 4:33 AM #45746
Very nicely played, Arwen. Thank you for brining this to us. Very catchy tune.
It reminds me of an old sea shanty. Thinks me might do a wee jig around the poop deck after we’ve scrubbed it down, before that blighty old Captain Ahab decides to scratch it up with his splintery wooden leg. Come to think of it: this tune has overtones of Fisher’s hornpipe. Maybe ’twas the same sailor who penned both of ’em, just before old Ahab made ‘im walk the plank. 🙂February 8, 2017 at 7:50 AM #45774
I have to take this one to work with me and start practicing…sounds much like another favorite “Swallowtail Jig”
Thanks for the lesson…I haven’t felt like learning anything new for a while 😉February 8, 2017 at 9:08 AM #45775
Peggy, I hope you will learn it and put it in the Lions Den.
I hope you and yours are doing well.February 8, 2017 at 9:42 AM #45776
Very nice job! I can’t play at that level …yet but this certainly increases my awareness of my need to practice more. Your daughter seems to have inherited dad’s skills. and that’s splendid!February 8, 2017 at 12:30 PM #45777
awesome job Arwen.
With St Patty’s around the corner, I’m looking for some more Celtic tunes!!! Beautifully done! Love Gu’s comment….the apple has not fallen far, for sure!

Thank you Mr. Cockman for such a wonderful tune and lesson! This is just the kind of tune I like to play! Surprisingly, I’ve never heard it before, and I thought I was pretty well informed as far as Celtic music goes! So excited to learn this one!
Also, Arwen, you’re a superb fiddler! Thank you!
Does anyone think the tune is a little reminiscent of the road to Lisdoonvarna?February 11, 2017 at 3:05 AM #45902
It does sound kind of like Lisdoonvarna!
Arwen has been enjoying Celtic recently. I think she wants to play the Kesh Jig next.
