Take songs that stop conversations, a voice that could stop wars and a fiddle that stops at nothing, and you have the icon Elsa McTaggart. The show consists of original compositions of traditional style… lively jigs, reels, hornpipes, airs etc, played on the fiddle and whistle. Her songs, which would come under the world music genre and range from folk to contemporary, blues, jazz and swing, are performed with guitar, a cappella or, sometimes, with the fiddle. Elsa writes about life, about spiritual and emotional aspects and about people she has met.
