Traditional Fiddle introduces eight regional fiddle styles from England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, with contributions from world-renowned fiddlers Kevin Burke, John Dipper, Liz Doherty, Nancy Kerr, Sian Phillips, Aidan O'Rourke, Jenna Reid, and Patsy Reid. This is the perfect introduction to traditional fiddling for intermediate players.

She works regularly as a session musician and has recorded for, among others, Maddy Prior, Simon Emmerson, Duotone, Amy Macdonald, and Stornoway.
