The Evenstar


(If you have trouble playing this video on your device, scroll to the bottom of the page for our Standard Video Player)

The Evenstar (named for Arwen of The Lord of the Rings) is an original Scottish fiddle tune composed by Fiddlevideo instructor Hanneke Cassel. This G key tune is a slow reel with a 6/8 feel underneath, so we’ve included it in our Air/Scottish Ballad section. Hanneke walks us through her basic and advanced arrangement of the tune in this lesson module.
