* Fiddle Tunes (Irish Music for Strings)
In the old days, the Irish belief was filled with little people,
shamrocks and celtic magic.
The foggy weather enhanced fantasy and fear.
Thus music played for Irish a big role. With merry sounds of a
fiddle or drum (tabor),
they drove away the bad sprits and bad mood. With music they found
comfort and sometimes
hope in a land at a time when things were very hard.
