Here's another tune from me, but this time it's written by Chris Perry, a fellow fiddler.

Hope you like it :)

Good one, thanks Jim.

My first question about the video is what style or genre am I hearing?  A regional sound?

Second, I could not Google up a likely Chris Perry altho there seems to be another famous musician with that name (?)

Third, I caught a shot of you next to Paris Hilton on a pavarotti page. 

Good for for you !!!!

LOL,

I say cool all the time. I guess it's not really cool to do that.

Well, it's really a bit of Irish and English I guess ... Chris is a regular visitor to the UK Fiddle hell events. He writes tunes and makes his own recordings.

 

Yeah, Paris Hilton got a bit boring that day. All she did was talk about shoes :)

Slight clarification here : I should have said "Fiddle Hell". That's a UK-US event which spawned from one member of the "Fiddle and Alternative Strings Forum" which was organised in the US mid-west. Since then, there have been similar fiddler meetings in Groton, MA, and Buxton UK, Birmingham UK and Manchester UK ... also in Den Helder, in the Netherlands. There are jams and workshops - I taught at the MA ones from 2007-2010.

I'd guess they are a bit like Fiddlerman's SoCal jam, but without the mighty fiddle man Pierre himself :)

It's still part of the music lingo and is still cool to say cool.

 

Cool - Excellent, first-rate, imperturbable, informal and casual are all definitions of cool. The term 'cool' is a development from a usage meaning “excellent, superlative,” first recorded in written English in the early 1930s. Jazz musicians who used the term are responsible for its popularization during the 1940s. As a slang word it has stayed current (and cool) far longer than most such words. Other similar slang expressions include capital, hot, groovy, hip, crazy, far-out, rad, and wicked - these are no longer perceived as 'cool' but as old-fashioned and out-dated.

Quite the array of positive exclamations. You did leave out "peachy" and "keen" as in peachy keen, but the meaning certainly wasn't lost.

 

Lets not forget the Texting age of whats "hip". With "Awesome", "Bad", "Sick", "Fricken-Eh" (slightly changed spelling)  and the one I dislike the most.... "Epic".

 

Not everything is Epic. The Nowell Codex (Beo Wolf) is Epic.  a Shelby GTO is Epic, Wagner's Prelude from Lohengrin is Epic, An MR Desert Eagle is Epic, A Sequoiadendron Giganteum (Giant Sequoia) is Epic. A Sasquatch - ok, I'm from the Northwest wink - is epic.  The program and technology behind it might be Epic, but Your little video about a pixel man in a pixel forest with a pixel sword slaying a pixel beast is not epic. tonguelaugh

OMG! I just googled Fiddle Hell, MA. I cant believe this was so close to where I live and so recent ...and I MISSED it!!! Grrrr! I hope it's held here next year.

And, hey, there's plenty of fiddling north of the Mason-Dixon line. Don't forget there's Boston's Irish heritage and Cape Breton north of the border.
