Join fiddler and scholar Howard Marshall for a live demonstration of Missouri fiddling and a discussion of the history and people behind the music.

Making music informally is a satisfying, simple pleasure of everyday life. And the fiddle or violin is an instrument many have picked up and learned to play by ear in informal settings. Musical traditions involving the fiddle are widespread around the world, but in our region, the fiddle is often heard at traditional dances, front-porch jam sessions and in bluegrass music. Many Missouri fiddlers chose to "keep it old-time," carrying on the inherited tunes and styles of former times, but as with most musicians, Missouri fiddlers have learned from many sources and ventured into many styles.

Howard Marshall is professor emeritus and former chair of art history and archaeology and former director of the Missouri Cultural Heritage Center at the University of Missouri, Columbia. He will be accompanied by longtime friends Heinrich Leonhard (guitar), Jim Ruth (banjo), Kathy Gordon (bass) and special guests bluegrass mandolinist Art Logan. 

His latest book, "Keep It Old-Time: Fiddle Music in Missouri From the 1960s Folk Music Revival to the Present" (with a companion CD of 36 fiddlers) from the University of Missouri Press, will be available for purchase at the program. 

Adults and teens. Please register to attend.
