    There are many genres of string playing in Australia, the boundaries between them being very often blurred. In the nineteenth century, classically trained string players would play in grand opera, philharmonic societies, and symphony orchestras as well as popular dance bands and theatre orchestras. In recent years there has been a revival of the Scottish and Irish fiddle playing tradition.

    See just how Australians have gone about bowing and plucking their strings.
