Bha Dòmhnall Riddell BEM, nach maireann, à Cnoc Odhar, faisg air Inbhir Nis. Bhiodh e a' cluich na fìdhle, a' sgrìobhadh ciùil agus a' dèanamh fhìdhlean. Bha e cuideachd na Mhàidsear-pìoba anns na Lovat Scouts. Am measg nan sgoilearan aige bha Donnchadh Siosalach, Brus MacGriogair agus Iain MacPhàrlain.

Anns an earrainn èisteachd seo, tha Dòmhnall a' bruidhinn mu dheidhinn a bhith a' faighinn tòna math air an fhidhill, sgil a dh'ionnsaich e bho Alasdair Batten Grannd, fear eile a bhiodh a' dèanamh fhìdhlean còmhla ris, agus a bhiodh a' sgrìobhadh ceòl cuideachd.


'To get good tone on a fiddle it all depends on good material in the first place, with resonant properties and knowing how to make them vibrate. A fiddle is just a wooden box of peculiar construction built as a resonator - that's all it is. And I discovered through Grant that the tone of fiddle depends on the relationship of the front and back - a speed of taper and that relationship is determined by the thickness of the wood. But this thickness - no one can ever discover it if they've got to use callipers and mathematical instruments. You've got to measure the vibrations and you do that with your ear, just by tapping, gently tapping, or brushing the plates with your fingers you can assess the speed that they're vibrating at and get the relationship adjusted that way. Generally the thicker the wood, the higher the speed of vibration, you see, and therefore the higher the pitch and the thinner you work it, the lower it goes and this is, this is comes a time when you must know the pitch you're aiming at'
