A father and son duo - Ryan and Brennish Thomson perform at the Grand Hyatt in New York City, USA, on March 9, 2012, for the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation. Brennish Thomson plays his violin in the standard right handed way, while his father plays his instrument left handed.
Ryan Thomson acquired a disability known as focal dystonia and so had to give up right handed playing and relearn to play left handed. In this video the Thomsons play a hungarian fast dance which is used for folk dancing.
This tune by the Fiddling Thomsons is available for download on iTunes, and on their recent CD - "Fiddling Thomsons, Music for Both Hands."
The Fiddling Thomsons perform throughout New England. Ryan teaches several different instruments and produces instructional books, videos, and recordings. Visit the Captain Fiddle web site at http://www.captainfiddle.com for more information and email and contact addresses.
Please support the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation, which is helping people around the world with the condition of dystonia!
