Book Description
This volume, the third in a series, is the result of the 2008 North Atlantic Fiddle Convention, held in St. John's, Newfoundland, its theme being 'Crossing Over'. With contributions from Canada, the United States, Scotland, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Spain, the publication covers a rich range of topics relevant to crossing over from the Old-World to the New World but also the converse. This collection of 21 essays, which should appeal to both scholars and enthusiasts alike, explores issues of immigration-emigration, cultural politics, transatlantic journeys, New World explorations and adaptations as well as folk revivals, alongside competition networks and performer creativity. Readers will also find the index of songs tunes and dances useful. The North Atlantic, in providing a unifying frame for these studies, is not conceived of in terms of boundaries that separate and divide peoples, but rather as corridors through which cultures have flowed and continue to flow in a process of exchange and communication.
