Default Nice traditional tune

I just printed out "Josefin's Waltz" from Natalie MacMaster's site. It's a very simple waltz, but it is very pretty. It's funny, I thought I'd heard this tune before, it is actually on the Vasen album "Spirit" which came out in 1997. I bought this Vasen album a long time ago. Vasen is a Swedish fiddle group, but this song has now appeared on Natalie MacMaster (Canadian) and Alasidair Fraser (Scottish) fiddle CDs.

She actually has settings for a lot of tunes that she plays:

Anyway, it's a nice pretty tune.

Hey Austin, if you did not pick it up in my prior post, check out www.bonnierideout.com, I only though Natalie had the finest articulation until I heard this American Girl. Classical Trained in Violin Performance at U. of Maryland, B.A. in Fine Arts, then went to live in Scotland for four years. What I have been doing is building playlist with the same song by Alasdair first and then Her Version. Her ornamatationi is to date the best I have ever heard, and I'm close to the age I can eat at Denny's for free. What night you going to Hahn's Concert, I am going to drive up from S.A. but waited to buy tickets until I asked you that, maybe on our private E-Mail we can find a place at intermission to meet. At my age, with my 60's hippie look (just a little grayer now, I'm not hard to pick out of a crowd. )

I picked up one of Bonnie Rideout's albums off of iTunes a couple of months ago, "Bonnie Rideout - A Scottish Fiddle Collection". I quite like it.

For the Hahn concert, I'm going Saturday night. I haven't been to Bass Concert Hall in probably 8-10 years, so I've forgotten the layout of the venue . You can PM me if you want to discuss offline.
