I stumbled across this vid on the internetz yesterday and I can’t help but being utterly amazed. I’ve been quite a good fiddler as a youngster, learning to play the violin before I learned to properly walk and talk. However, I always thought it’s kinda ‘uncool’, so I quit before I turned a teenager and experimented with a bunch of different instruments before I eventually ended up as a turntablist (which obviously wasn’t too bad of a decision after all). Nuff respect to Nigel Kennedy and Miri Ben-Ari, but THIS is truly swagful violinism and on some next level 2011 live show shit IMO.
