Here’s a lovely, lyrical video of Joel Savoy and David Greely playing twin fiddles at Jazz Fest.  This took place on the Alison Minor Heritage Stage, a little-attended venue inside the air-conditioned grandstand, where musicians and others are interviewed and perform.  Love the twin fiddle sound.  Unfortunately no year is given.  This is the old fashioned style, now somewhat out of favor.  The big band, dance hall style holds sway, as seen at last week’s Festivals Acadiens et Créoles.  Be sure to read the entire description below the video for a deeper appreciation.
