Tunes for a Monday Morning

This week's tunes come from two fantastic fiddle players -- one performing in a stripped down, traditional manner, and one in a more contemporary fashion, with a full band behind her.

Above: Caoimhín Ó Raghallaig, raised in Dublin and inspired by the great fiddle players of Ireland, performs a soulful solo set at The Back Loft in Dublin's City Centre.

Below: Natalie MacMaster, raised in the Cape Breton music tradition in rural Novia Scotia, Canada, performs a foot-stomping "Volcanic Jig." (The cellist, Wendy Solomon, is amazing too. She also plays with Bowfire, and a cello quartet called Lush.)
