I was digg'n around in the 70's and found treasure!  

Jethro Tull's "Aqualung" (1971), performed by the Hampton String Quartet. 

...just goes to show we can play this, too! 🤗

 

A little unexpected Pop-Rock (wish I'd found a better recording), Supertramp's "Logical Song" (1979), performed by Felice D'Amico - very fun! 

Just Being Contented Smiley Have some fun!

Love finding some of my favorite music played by strings!

My teacher on viola

She's also a permanent member of the Bootleg Beatles:-

I think she's hiding behind "George Harrison"

@Gordon Shumway -

Thank you!

Great "Mr Blue Sky" (love ELO) - love your teacher's viola! 

Love The Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby", too. 

BUT... Eleanor Rigby is the 60's (not the 70's)!🤭

How about a Father & Son Cello team from Italy? 

"Stairway to Heaven" (1971 Led Zeppelin) - performed by GuerzonCellos, Enrico Guerzoni and son Tiziano. 

All the effects are ACOUSTIC!

I can't help but want to give merit to where it's due, so here's another Cello performance!  Great inspiration for 5 string Fiddlers, Violists and Cellists! 

"Layla" (Clapton/Gordon - 1970 Derek and The Dominos), performed by RMS Cello Big Band! 

 

 

Maybe more swing'n than rock'n, but couldn't resist.

Maybe I am turning this into a Cello thread, but these guys are GREAT! 

"Immigrant Song" (Led Zeppelin 1970) - ACOUSTIC performance by DeGambas. 

 

"Smoke On The Water" (Deep Purple 1972), performed by Melo-M! (also Acoustic!)

Much, much, more here - 60's, Beatles, Film,  a nice variety of genres.

...bummed out - actually thought ZZ Top's "Gimme All Your Lovin'" was a 70's song. 😒

I found a Violin accompaniment for the Eagles' - "Hotel California"!  Can be used as a 2nd voice with the melody! (at ViolinParT)

I also found an orchestra score for Deep Purple's - "Smoke On The Water", but you probably have to cast it up to a big screen to see it well enough to use it! 

From Hal Leonard Orchestra - arranged by Larry Moore.

 

From QUEEN - "Bohemian Rapsody"!

 

From LED ZEPPELIN - Melody AND 2nd voice for "Stairway To Heaven"

MANY more scores (including film scores) for Violin here.

Had to share this video of Alex DePue and Miguel De Hoyos playing some of my favorite 70's tunes!

...I'm in heaven, but still wish the video quality was better (aren't we spoiled?).

So far, I've hoped to inspire others to try playing some of this era's rockin' music on the Violin, Viola & Cello. 

🤔... but, when did actual Rock Violinists hit the scene & who were they? 

Chris Haigh has this video with some GREAT info on "Rock Violin In The 70's"

Btw, AndrewH shared some great videos and article about Rachel Barton Pine's love of Heavy Metal in The Metal Thread

I guess jazz violin evolved into rock violin during the 60s.

You had the Mahavishnu Orchestra and Ivry Gitlis in the Rolling Stones' Rock and Roll Circus. And the Beatles.

@Gordon Shumway -

Thanks!

It was 1968 when Ivry Gitlis played with Yoko & John (both the Rolling Stones Circus & The Dirty Mac). 

Jean Luc Ponty was making a name for himself in 60's Jazz, before meeting up with Frank Zappa in 1969. 

Chris Haigh talked about Jerry Goodman and Jean Luc Ponty in his video - both had been violinists with the Mahavishnu Orchestra in the 70's. 

 

Heard about Allen Sloan?  

I just learned about Sloan - seems he was pretty remarkable in the 70's!  Played with Dixie Dregs - Southern/Progressive Rock.  

"Dixie Dregs - Live At The Montreux Jazz Festival" (1978) - EXCELLENT VIDEO!

https://player.odycdn.com/api/.....c6d/5ad473

 

What impresses me about Sloan is he's right up there pulling his weight, equally with the guitarist, bass player & keyboard - a VERY versatile Violinist, he's not just stuck in there for an effect. 

Jerry Goodman filled in for him, later (starting 1992), when Sloan's Medical career became too demanding.
