Fiddler's Bid is another of the many bands I've discovered, while looking at the music of musicians, who play Irish music. I really like the way in which they play the fiddle because they always play in a cheerful and soothing manner.
Fiddlers' Bid are a band from the Shetland Isles, who play modernised versions of traditional Shetland fiddle tunes. Their compositions involve four fiddles, a piano, the bass and a guitar. They are very popular in the world of music, so they've played at many big folk festivals like the Smithsonian Folklife Festival.
