While slowly working through updates for this website, I (Trae McMaken) am also engaged in another Michigan-fiddling related project called "Border Fiddle." It is where I will be posting short videos of myself playing through fiddle tunes from Michigan. If you're interested, see below. Hope you enjoy.
Michigan Fiddle . Com is currently being migrated over to a new design format. A number of links on this site are broken currently. These will be addressed in the new formatting.
Congratulations to Danny Johnston of Goodhart, Michigan. On August 10 at the 2014 Great Lakes Folk Festival Danny was awarded the Michigan Heritage Award for his fiddling and impact in the Michigan fiddle community. Bravo.
