Fiddle music, stuff for the old folks? Paul Lafrance doesn’t think so. While foot stomping in our modern world, why not swing the bow too?
In these days of instant communications, of constantly renewed technologies, the album A Fiddler’s Web is here to prove that reels, jigs and clogs are still big — and real, not fake — news.
It includes 17 original fiddle tunes, all composed and played by Paul Lafrance, that reflect today’s reality: IT and computing, the Internet, social media, email and text messaging, blunders and benders of the virtual world…
Some titles: Dial-Up Connect, Leaking Wikis, The Cloud’s Waltz, Online LOL-a-Buy, Spam Spangled Server, Global Net Breakdown…
Give it a listen, no doubt you’ll « Like » it 👍 !
