Welcome

Welcome to the Michigan Fiddle . Com project. The goal is to study, make accessible, and promote Michigan Fiddling. Currently, there is a good variety of materials already posted, but there is far more that is still waiting to be put on the website, so check back as we continue to move collections onto the website.

PLEASE: Read Eliot Singer's Request to Locate Family Members of Fiddlers.
