FOLK FIDDLE 2 is an evolution of the concept behind the much loved Folk Fiddle library. With all new recorded samples and stacks of articulations packed full of human performance. With soul, character, and a raw emotion emanating from every note.

CONTEXTUAL DEMO 3

In the third demo, the Fiddle 2 tackles a classic folk fiddle piece called 'The Banks of Spey'. Accompanied here with guitar, claps & tambourine.

In the second contextual demo, we take the Fiddle in a completely different journey into it's more delicate and contemplative moods. In the style of film composers/musicians such as Nick Cave & Warren Ellis, or Marco Beltrami.

In this demo we check out the Fiddle both in a solo setting and in the context of a lively upbeat band. Accompanied by Guitar and Piano.
