'The Lonesome Touch' is a common moniker for the East Clare Irish music tradition, which is considered the oldest surviving regional folk music style in Ireland.

Characterized by slower tempi, prevalence of minor keys and modes, and sparse ornamentation, this music has been passed down aurally for hundreds of years.

This program for solo violin brings together traditional dance tunes from East Clare and J.S. Bach's d minor partita, interspersing sets of Clare tunes between movements of Bach.

Juxtaposing the dance sets with the dance-inspired movements of Bach casts each in a new light, highlighting the dance origins of the Bach while inviting audiences to consider the artistry, nuance, and deep understanding of tradition that go into a compelling fiddle performance.
