St. Patrick’s Day Special: An Authentic Irish Fiddler from Portland 

Our St. Patrick’s Day Special features a Portland native who moved to Limerick to learn traditional Irish fiddling. As you know, we typically look at American fiddling tradition on Fiddle Me This, but this holiday gives us an opportunity to share something different. Listen as Erik Killops shares authentic Irish tunes and how we were first introduced in Ireland, even though I’ve never been there.. Fiddle nerds will enjoy Erik’s description of how hornpipes are played on this one. Tune in for a great discussion on American vs. Irish fiddling traditions.
