Award-winning oral history, with over 100 historical photographs, takes an entertaining look at the folkways and colorful character of rural fiddlers in the Midwest in the early 1900s. The text and images celebrate the days of "house party" socials, barn dances, and old-time fiddler contests, based on interviews by the author with elder musicians and dancers.
