Ozarks Fiddle Music Book

Books | String Instruments

Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor

This book, which includes 308 tune transcriptions, is organized around individual Fiddlers who typically combine Appalachian-style Fiddling with rags, pop standards, Midwest-style Fiddling and sometimes a touch of Western swing to create a style often identifiable as Ozarks.

Thirty Ozarks fiddlers and their lives are highlighted with biographical sketches, photographs, and tune histories. Another 50 great Ozarks fiddlers are presented in a similar manner but with less detail.

The book and accompanying audio (with 37 tunes, many recorded in the field) emphasize the older fiddling traditions connected to the square dances and community events more than those connected to bluegrass music and modern contest Fiddling. Some of the tunes in the collection are old standbys such as "Bile Them Cabbage" while others such as "Finley Creek Blues" are unique to the region.
