Favorite songs with violins/strings accompaniment.

@Real Music,
This is one of the most amazing musical performances I've ever seen, Theresa Andersson's Oh, Mary don't you weep. She accompanies herself in both vocals and violin, live multitracking and looping, the effect is mesmerizing and stunningly beautiful. She has more talent in her toes than most people have in their whole bodies. Watch her feet carefully.

@Banana Breath,
That was very cool - I wonder if Tash Sultana had ever heard of her....

Take 2 because Take 1 isn't rendering at all.

Looks like A2K is broken

Pardon the temporary thread derailment.

@hingehead,
Probably so; Tash's first known recording was several years after the release of Andersson's "Oh Mary." Of course both pay homage to Les Paul and Mary Ford who were doing multi-tracking self accompaniment back in the 1950's.

@Banana Breath,
But not live - tape tech wasn't quite that good - the Strawberry Fields cut and paste story is pretty cool too.

@farmerman,
Looks like nobody has yet mentioned "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," which introduced competitive fiddling to the masses:

@Banana Breath,
I thought about it - but decided it didn't meet the violins/strings or accompaniment criteria.

Can’t post links but there’s a wonderful bit of violin on the original version of Motörhead by Hawkwind.
