Gordon Swift, violin -- Celtic, old-time fiddle, Gypsy, spirituals & more
Folks often ask if I play the violin or the fiddle, to which the answer is, "Yes!" With the exception of some classical melodies for the wedding ceremony, my music is an eclectic mix of tunes from non-classical traditions.
Many of my selections have long been known as fiddle tunes, while others are songs which I've arranged for my instrument. A sample list of tunes follows:
Gypsy: The Basso, Dark Eyes, Two Guitars
Klezmer: Berdichiever Khosid, Ma Yofus
Spirituals: Amazing Grace, Wayfaring Stranger, Wondrous Love
Wedding Ceremony: Bridal Chorus, Trumpet Tune, Wedding March
Originals: Marcie's Lark, Long River, The 12/20 Waltz
