That woman is one great fiddler, no doubt about it, like I said thanks great tutorial, watched one by Kevin Burke were he didnt really mention the up bow, but I think thats a good idea, makes sense, to practice both ways, after all Irish fiddling as you know is mainly about improvisation, as you see when you are in a pub over there and the tunes change completwly over the course of a couple of hours and the amount of cider thats been put away. :)

@stringy My first teacher, who was not primarily an Irish fiddler, only taught me on a down bow. My second teacher grew up playing Irish fiddle (she's good friends with the fiddler I posted) stressed to me learning it up and down. She is most comfortable playing it on a down bow, so even she has to keep the up bow triplet in practice, haha.  I miss my lessons with her, she was so good! 

Kiana, the one I posted, has a Fiddle Club teaching website, it's out of my unemployed price range at the moment (lol) but I really like her teaching style.
