Editorial Reviews

Review

“Marshall did serious investigation, with a combined 60 pages of notes, discography, and bibliography. There are 26 transcriptions and a fantastic 30-track CD that accompanies the text that will get the readers on their way to a representative repertoire.”—Fiddler Magazine


“The specific focus of Fiddler’s Dream is on fiddle music in everyday life at music parties, dances, pie suppers, festivals, contests, and oprys. Professor Marshall’s wealth of knowledge, gained through a lifetime of involvement in Missouri fiddle traditions, gives his comprehensive study an exceptional richness and depth in its content.”—Midwest Book Review


“Carries the reader through an extraordinarily wide range of people and places and introduces each of the many key fiddlers or influencers with the sort of full background information that characterizes deep ethnographic presentation.”—Thomas A. Adler, author of Bean Blossom: The Brown County Jamboree and Bill Monroe’s Bluegrass Festivals


“A rich evocation of Missouri fiddlers and fiddling during the period of greatest change in American musical history.”—Sarah Bryan, folklorist and editor of the Old-Time Herald


“An eye-opening book that proves just how important instruments like the fiddle were to the musical history of Missouri. Even those who are not musicians will be captivated by the spirituality and evolution of fiddle music in the Midwest.”—Missouri Life

Book Description

This book explores and documents the heritage of traditional fiddles and music in Missouri, with emphasis on the 1920s-60s, decades of great change in cultural traditions, in daily life, and in styles and repertoires of fiddle music.
