This is my entry for Foto Finish. Something old. There were so many things I was thinking of… the old thatched cottage next door, the castle in the village…
but I wanted something that I own (proudly own) and here it is, my fiddle.
It was my grandfather’s, although he didn’t play. It was badly damaged and I took it to a luthier who did a great job and I started learning how to play Irish trad. I think it is the oldest thing I have at home, it’s from the 1880-90’s, and I love it! its sound is beautiful (except when I’m playing it!)

Era del meu avi, pero ell no el tocava. Estava forc,a atrotinat i el vaig portar a un luthier perque l’arregles. El va deixar fantastic i vaig comenc,ar a aprendre a tocar musica irlandesa. Crec que es la cosa mes vella que tinc a casa, es d’entre el 1880 i 1890 i pico… i m’encanta, m’agrda el seu so (menys quan soc jo la que el toca!)
