: Myrrh, it does sound wonderful. I go to Highland Games in Northern California every year. I would think there is something similar in the North Carolina area and an emigre community with fiddler's to boot! This would be one way to find someone more local, and I'm sure if you told them what you were looking for they could oblige. Fraser probably draws good bucks to perform...
: Danalee --There's nothing finer than a good Irish or Scottish Fiddler!
: : I know this is totally off the wall, but hey... that's how the Gathering started in the first place!
: : Reading Steve and Sarah M's exchange on the sheet music for The Kiss, I saw Sarah mention "the person purported to have performed the music -- Alasdair Fraser -- who lives in Houston."
: : Then this idea just POPPED into my head: Wouldn't it be wonderful if the Gathering could get this man to appear and play that music???!!!
: : I know, he probably would like to get PAID. But isn't it a great idea??!!!
: : Myrrh
Danalee & Myrrh: The biggest highlands festival in the country is held on Grandfather Mtn. in July every year. There's also a big Scottish organization here. Let me know if you want me to try to find someone. YRH
