American music.

We consider that any man who can fiddle all through one of those Virginia Reels without losing his grip, may be depended upon in any kind of emergency.
- Mark Twain

Like the founders of our country, this music is deeply rooted in Europe.

But the culture, the barrel in which these tunes were aged, was found here.

In America.

I love the fiddle.
