Teaching M02: Intro to Irish Fiddle.

Ed Paloucek started out as a classical violinist as a kid, and later became interested in Irish music. A consummate tune collector and session player, Ed has travelled the backroads of Ireland in search of tunes, and has played with some of the biggest names in Celtic music. Ed's sound is the Scottish-tinged style of Donegal, the county in the far northwest of Ireland, and he also includes pieces from many other countries in his playing. In the 90s, Ed was a member of Milwaukee band 180 and the Letter G. In addition to fiddle, Ed has recently taken up the hurdy gurdy, a medieval instrument, and has been playing his custom-made hurdy gurdy live with the band.
