The fiddle has always played an important roll in the music of North America. It was one of the few instruments that made the trip across the Atlantic with some of the first settlers, thanks to its small size and popularity.
Last week I posted just a few of my all time favorite tunes and it occurred to me that a good number of them were fiddle tunes. I know that more than a few riders on the Bus are fans of fiddle music also, so let’s spin a few good fiddle tunes this week.
