Enjoy learning Celtic Fiddle

The fiddle tradition was born among rural populations in Ireland. Helped by the violin’s low-cost, easy maintenance, and musical accessibility, it is a tradition that has thrived across many generations.

Although the violin and fiddle are essentially the same instrument, Celtic musicians prefer the colloquial word ‘fiddle’ to differentiate their music and style of playing from other traditionally recognised violin music.

The sound is joyful and infectious, and at World Heart Beat we love our Celtic fiddle classes – they are very popular across all ages.

Outside of traditional Irish dance music, the fiddle can be heard in New England’s country dance, western swing and upbeat bluegrass music in the Southern State of the USA.
