Hamar Ower Da Taing & other Shetland tunes (book): The first in the Fiddle Frenzy series - An excellent new book of tradional Shetland tunes published by Shetland Arts featuring fiddle tunes from five areas of the Islands ie: The North Isles, Yell & Fetlar; The North Mainland; The West Side including Papa Stour; The East Side including Whalsay; Central & South Mainland including Fair Isle.
The remoteness of Shetland and the communities within Shetland helped unique styles to develop. One of the reasons why Shetland music has survived is because it is a living tradition and each generation that has picked up their fiddle has been enthused to carry and develop that tradition with them.
..Working in conjunction with formal education tutors, musicians and many others concerned with Shetland's music traditions, Shetland Arts sought to change the fact that many tunes and styles that used to be played across Shetland were dying out, and this project was developed as a way of reversing this trend with young players learning how to pass on tunes from their areas to other young players. Shetland Arts are hoping to enthuse another generation to take some of that distinctive source materials that inspired their forefathers and to use it as a base for developing the Shetland traditions in the future.
