Siegfried Halus, nationally known photographer, has published a folio of portraits celebrating Connecticut Fiddlers. These warm intimate portraits, made over a two-year period from 1974 to 1976, focused on the rich fiddling heritage of Connecticut. At the time these photographs were made, Halus lived in Hartford Ct. For 35 years these photographs lay forgotten in his archive. Many of these old-time fiddlers not only enjoyed playing together, but also carried on the teaching of younger players. These photographs chronicled a generation stirred by passionate musicality and comradery, telling a compelling story of the times. Included is an essay by the author, and short comments by two world-class fiddlers, Suzy Thompson and Jane Rothfield.
