Joe McHugh is a storyteller, fiddler, and award-winning public radio journalist who travels the world exploring the many roles the violin family of instruments play in society today. He has interviewed gifted musicians who play a variety of styles—classical, folk, jazz, and rock—as well as master luthiers, dealers, collectors, tone wood producers, insurance agents, museum curators, rosin makers, string designers—even FBI agents who have helped recover stolen violins. The Rosin the Bow archive of recorded interviews will eventually become a permanent part of the Smithsonian Institution’s collection of violin-related materials.

A must listen podcast for all fiddle players!

Whether you play classical, old time, Irish or klesmer fiddle, you'll find this podcast super interesting and informative.

The podcast is done in interview format, with different names in the violin world. As of right now, it seems like most of the people have been luthiers, but there are also a bunch is music related episodes, and I've learned a ton from all of them.
