Our Irish Fiddle instructor plays a hornpipe in the Peghead Nation studio.

Dale Russ has been playing Irish fiddle since his move in 1973 from his native Connecticut to Washington State, where he is now regarded as “the shining jewel of Northwest fiddle players.” While Dale was in the studio to record lessons for his course, he played this version of “The Flowing Tide,” a hornpipe in G that involves a lot of G arpeggios that weave around themselves in interesting ways.
In his Irish Fiddle course on Peghead Nation, Dale teaches this tune and many others, with an emphasis on playing the dance music of Ireland, including jigs, reels, polkas, slip jigs, and more.
