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.
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.
