You rocked the Opening Ceremony Canada congrats! I am wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of some of that fiddle music. Some of it sounded like what I have heard during Flogging Molly concerts. It was some awesome stuff, I was just wondering if it is possible to track down some of the Canadian breed. Thanks.

I don't know much about classical music but try the official Olympic websites maybe for the info.

It was a great opening. I'm just glad they got most of the hydraulic torch pillars raised...

Looks like Ashley MacIsaac wore some shorts under this kilt this time. I'm positive they checked him just before he went onstage.

The last fiddler was MacIsaac, yeah. Though it'd be impossible to tell from the American coverage; they showed almost exclusively the dancers on the floor. I was yelling at the TV, "The dancing is incidental! Show the stage! It's the fiddling that's the point."

And yeah, I watched the coverage twice, on Canadian TV live and American TV tape-delayed. I just couldn't get enough of John Furlong's and Jacques Rogge's droning, unending speeches.

Also check out Barrage - http://www.barrage.org/ - for more great violin/fiddle music. They do all kinds of stuff with the violin, not just fiddle music, but I really like their stuff.
