I think this thread should go here?
Anyone know of any simple period fiddle tunes? I began learning how to play 2 months ago and I'm starting to get the hang of it.
One tune I've worked out so far is Cest Laviron, a 19th century voyageur song.

Found out it's a great upbeat tune for parties.

Found some 18th century fiddle tunes, with tutorials too.

Flowers of Edinburgh, a Scottish reel and immediately recognizable from the Jas. Townsend videos.


Fisher's hornpipe, a English tune.


Some other 18th century tunes out there are: Rickett's hornpipe (English), Swallowtail Jig (Irish), and St. Anne's Reel (Canadian).

Hopefully I'll learn them all soon.
