    Thanks for the reminder, Nancy! I’ll hopefully be in the Scottish highlands on the 19th, and I’ll try to play a few fiddle tunes if it isn’t raining too heard. 🙂

    What do you think the best all-around tune is for world fiddle day?  I’m thinking Boil ’em Cabbage Down…lol.  Who eats a lot of cabbage?  I guess a day never gets by us without cabbage in one form or another, but surprisingly, most people around me here never, ever eat cabbage…just playing the tune can make me pretty hungry!  Cabbage is good stuff…oughta be more songs about it.  There’s a song called Make my Greens Good and Greasy…anybody know that one?  Haven’t heard that one for years and not sure I remember exactly how it goes…I guess in these current modern times, there oughts be some fiddle tunes like, Open up that there Bag of Oreos…or….Gimme one more French Fry…Truckin’ on through the Drive-Thru, etc., lol.

    Guys…world fiddle day videos would be fun…whoever can do that.  we’ll be busy on Saturday and I probably will have no time to play, but maybe sometime during the week I might try to play something to put up a video early Saturday…cheat a little bit on the day…lol.  Or maybe I won’t even get to that…but, if possible, it would be cool for whoever gets to getting up a world fiddle day video…would be a cool forum thread.

    I’ll try, depending on my WiFi! I’ll be in Ballachulish, Scotland, home of John Cameron who wrote “Chì mi na Mòrbheanna,” so I may try to do that one.
