Old fiddle tunes which are steeped in centuries of tradition have always been granted a special power and meaning, but how old are they? The two Davids have built a core repertoire of Scottish tunes which in the 18th century were both old and new, and they explore the relationships between these and other traditions: in the European art music of the time, in the fiddle music of Scandinavia, and in present-day folk composition.
