March 7, 2002 Renee talks with three folk fiddlers who make up the band "Celtic Fiddle Festival." They're currently touring the west coast of the U.S., playing Celtic tunes from Ireland, Brittany, and Scotland. There's one fiddler from each nation, so they each take a solo turn to show how their styles are different. Celtic Fiddle Festival's latest CD is called, Rendezvous.

So many letters came to NPR telling us how comforted they were by the music. In this special feature, we offer some of those songs, along with images from events following the attacks.
