Fun fiddle show!
What a hoot, JT is a great host. The sound is great. Amazing podcast!
The podcast that fiddling richly deserves.
Hosted by Arkansas native, J.T. Trawick , a man who loves fiddlers and has had a lifelong passion for fiddling. Someone steeped in the tradition who retains vast knowledge about the history, characters, and culture of fiddling, but whose hungry ears are always wide open to learning about new styles and ideas and the future of this underrated art form. J.T. understands intuitively that one of the best things about this music are the stories embedded in the heritage and the podcast is a well balanced fusion of tunes and tales. It’s great to hear fiddlers talk about how fiddling found them and the heroes who inspired them. Personally, I love the fact the podcast is not a tool for the “famous fiddler” being interviewed to promote a project. The focus is on craftsmen and craftswomen who devote themselves to a criminally under heard and under appreciated discipline not for fame or glory, but because they simply can’t help themselves. They can’t live without it and their enthusiasm is contagious. The podcast is for both the long time fiddle fanatic or curious newcomer who may have heard horse hair drawn across strings for the very first time only recently in a way that tickled a voice in their head to say…”Wow. What was that?!” I started fiddling at a very early age and it remains a daily companion in my later years. With every episode of “Fiddle Me This” I am rewarded with hearing new tunes and stories brought forth from the bottomless well of riches that is fiddling.
