Hello,

I was rewatching Rob Roy the other day and I realized that I really loved the fiddle music when Cunningham is chasing that bearded guy (I forget his name, the one carrying the 1000 pounds) through the woods. Now I don't know anything about this kind of music but I think it's called Celtic fiddle? Can an aficionado point out some good musicians in this style?

Thanks,
Jeff Hsieh

That would be Eric Stoltz (the guy with the beard).

Hello. I think the fiddler in question is Alasdair Fraser who has many cd's out in a variety of styles. I'm sure you'll be pleased with any of his traditional recordings. My wife says that it might be William Jackson on the soundtrack.
Hope this helps,W.

I have the soundtrack to "Rob Roy". On the front it says music by Carter Burwell. Most of the traditional pieces ( like the reels, where Eric Stoltz is being chased by Tim Roth) are by a Scottish band called Capercaillie. Karen Matheson, Capercailie's lead singer, also sings vocals on other tracks in the movie. She has one of the most beautiful voices on the planet. I have a couple of other CDs by Capercailie as well. If you like the fiddling, see if you can find their CDs "Crosswinds" which has a lot of traditional pieces, and "Secret People" which is sort of half traditional and half modern. You can probably find them on Amazon.
