I've got to get me one of these...
... I'm diggin' it! :)
... and here's Intel's rendition of a real version of the first video above:
Looks like something from a Dr. Seuss orchestra!
The Intel one proves my theory of Engineers. They are all mad; which is a good thing because when* I win the Euro-Millions lottery, I'm finding one mad enough to build me one of these. Programmable of course :D
* Yeah right. When!
Arrrrgh! Very kewl Oz!

My all-time favorite tune by Dolly also includes my favorite fiddler, Mark O'Connor. In fact, Mark uploaded the video with himself and Dolly in it to YouTube himself:

Here's one of Mark when he was only 13 years old:

A nice song by Afro Celt Sound System (video is bird's eye view of Cape Cod):

...and here's a faster song by the same band:

While I liked it, the first one was a little slow for my tastes.

LOL... I thought that might happen, so included the faster paced song just in case. I listen to a lot of Irish music and when I first heard the Afro Celt Sound System, I was fascinated by their mix of African and Celtic sounds.

Raylene Rankin has a good solid voice, but I like the words and tune to the song as well.
