Where would country music be today without the fiddle? Fiddles were at the heart of western swing as it developed in the southwest in the 1930s, and of bluegrass as it matured in the southeast in the 1940s and ‘50s. Over the years, as country has flirted with pop music time and time again, and seemed in danger of losing its identity, the fiddle has been there to keep the country in country music. This album showcases some of the many styles of country fiddling as played by today’s top professional fiddlers. The Music ranges from traditional tunes over two centuries old, to recent compositions by some of the players heard here. The selections of old-time fiddling are played by some of the greatest, thus intended for listening rather than dancing – though the insistent pulse of the music will undoubtedly inspire many listeners to indulge in a step or two around the living room! Just to name a few of the immortal fiddlers featured on this album, Johnny Gimble, Paul Warren, Fiddlin' Red Herron, Chubby Wise, Benny Martin, Ramona Jones, Buddy Spicher, and others and many more!
