New Tune List and Sample Tracks

Roses In Winter: A Celebration of Washington's Old-Time Fiddlers
By Bríd Nowlan and Stuart Williams
(Book and CD: $25)

This collection of stories and tunes grew out of a series of workshops produced by District 8 (Pierce County). The twelve fiddlers featured here taught at the first two series of workshops, from October 2001 to May 2003. This book of biographies and compact disc of tunes was compiled to bring these fiddlers to a wider audience. The tunes on the CD (two from each fiddler) reflect the diverse origins of Northwest traditional fiddle music and are written out in standard notation in the book. The stories in the book show how fiddle music has been treasured and handed down from generation to generation. Doug Plummer's stunning black and white portraits complement the text and tunes.
