A bit of entertaining history
about fiddling and fiddlers
and a unique collection of fiddle tunes...

We have found a few old and entertaining publications related to fiddlers and fiddling. We have created PDF files containing scans of the original writing in an easy to print format.

We have also created a PDF collection of interesting fiddle tunes
The tunes are presented in a basic arrangement with guitar chords and a keyboard (or harp) accompaniment. You can use these basic arrangements to create your own version...
(PS - An obvious aside
these tunes can also be played on other instruments such as woodwinds....)
