Fiddling From the Hills
Fiddle music in America is as varied as its people. Every geographical area had tunes and styles that were unique to them, oftentimes based on those locales' immigrant influences. The same is true of Kentucky fiddling. There are many traditional styles throughout the state. This presentation will focus on the unique and diverse fiddle styles of eastern Kentucky and some of its most noted old-time fiddlers. Presenter Scott Miller, from the Kentucky Center for Traditional Music, will play tunes from different regions and demonstrate their unique character and influences and some of the stories that go along with the characters who played them.
This virtual presentation was done through Zoom and live streamed to the library's Facebook page. The speaker was booked through the Kentucky Humanities Speakers Roster.
