    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Does this qualify as a fiddle?



    Jacqueline Mary du Pré, OBE was a British cellist. At a young age, she achieved enduring mainstream popularity. Despite her short career, she is regarded as one of the greatest cellists of all time. Her career was cut short by multiple sclerosis, which forced her to stop performing at the age of 28. Wikipedia

    My favorite 3 mins of classical are played on a big fiddle.

    Anyone know how a performance like this is mic’ed? Seems it would be difficult, yet it looked like it truly was “live” in that vibrato audio and video matched, usually a telltale sign.

    Found this band recently.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    We have plenty of very good folk fiddlers of the female gender in the Nordic countries.
    Traditionally almost all fiddlers were man but now it is the other way around. Theese days we make better use of the natural supply of talents.

    A nyckelharpa is a traditional Swedish instrument. Not quite a fiddle but closely related. Traditionally played in central Sweden and by the Swedish minority in Österbotten in Finland. This lady is a foreigner yet very very very good at it.

    There are dedicated cello microphones, but that doesn't answer your 'is it live' question. A quick scan of her channel does suggest that she is just that good.

    this is just a mic video. . .

    No, I agree it is probably live, watching the vibrato is usually a tell. Just amazed that they can avoid wind and city noises that well. Are you saying there is probably a wireless mic inside the cello?

    The hurdygurdy has a richer range of sounds.

    No, I think she was just able to repeat a previously recorded performance that precisely. The cello mic she talks about in the video is very visible when used. I'm just guessing though. But she does appear to be a highly skilled musician, judging by the content on her YouTube channel.

    Nice enough, but let's see her take a bite out of the Kodaly cello sonata. If you haven't heard that piece, you should look it up. Unreal. Janos Starker ...

    She might surprise you.
    After a year at Smith College, she transferred to New York University to study cello performance and chamber music.
