Are you interested in blue-grass style, or just American tunes in general?

I like traditional music, usually I play in Irish session in pubs. Two years ago I have known during the festival of Gannat an group "La Vesse du Luop" from Quebec. So I have discovered canadian and after american. Who can help me to find some address about the various fiddler styles or other information like the title of some CD or the name of good fiddler. I prefer learn music listening than reading. Ciao Vincenzo

Hello, Vincenzo,

Keep looking back here, it's early in the morning here now, but later in the day you should get many responses.

There are some very good fiddlers at this forum and they will be able to tell you much about CDs and American and Canadian fiddlers.

Glad to have you at Mudcat. It doesn't cost anything to become a member, then you will be able to access the data base and get more information.

Good luck!

Giac

If you Click here you will get names,recordings and tunes from Cape Breton, Canada. Natalie McMaster and Jean Carignan are two other great Cape Breton Fiddlers.

For American try to find Mark O'Connor, Jay Ungar, Byron Berline or Alison Krause. These are all contemporary players.

For older styles look for Chubby Wise, Johnny Lee Wills,Arthur Smith, Kenny Baker, Vassar Clements or Tommy Jarrell.

I know I left out a lot, but where do you stop? "The Fiddlers Fake Book", by David Body, Oak Publication number OK63925, available from
Music Sales International
225 Park Avenue South
New York, New York 10003 USA or

8/9 Frith Street
London, W 1 V 5TZ England
not only has a lot of tunes on paper, but a GREAT discography in the back, so that you can buy the albums and listen to the recording that the tune was done from.

The International book number is
0.8256.0238.6 Hope this helped!

Sorcha, why do you class Jean Carrignan as Cape Breton? Wouldn't you call him a Quebecois fiddler?

For American appalachian fiddle music, a great contemporary player of this older style is Bruce Molsky. If you get a CD called "Bruce Molsky and Big Hoedown" you'll have a great recording of old-timey music.

There are many folks here that can help you with such things fiddlish. For a good overview I suggest you check out an outstanding publication titled: Fiddler Magazine (www.fiddle.com). They cover all kinds of fiddling around the world. Each issue comes with workshops and tunes not to mention listings of fiddle events.

Another name to look for, one of the best touring Canadian fiddlers, is Pierre Schryer from Ontario. He sometimes performs with his brothers Louis and Dan as the Schryer Triplets (they are identical triplets but have distinctive fiddle styles!), but usually these days as The Pierre Schryer Band. CD's include Triple Fiddle and New Canadian Waltz.

It's great to hear of your interest. Welcome to the Mudcat.

Yes - definitely take up Rex's suggestion of Fiddler Magazine. Every fiddler would benefit from reading it. The latest issue has articles on gypsy fiddlers. Fascinating stuff!

Hi Vincenzo

Hardiman the Fiddler also joins in welcoming you. Hope we see you round the 'cat. I have found the "Fiddler's Fake Book" an Oak Publication to be a great resource for traditional fiddle tunes.
