About Roses in Winter
Roses in Winter (Book/CD) was written and produced by Bríd Nowlan and Stuart Williams. The life stories of the twelve fiddlers profiled in the book tell the history of fiddle music in the Northwest.

About the Authors
Stuart Williams [http://www.learningmusician.com/StuartWilliams] has been playing traditional fiddle music in the Northwest for thirty years. His interest in the history of this tradition led to his work on the 'Washington Traditional Fiddlers Project for which he produced a cassette and CD of Washington fiddle music along with a booklet of biographical information on the featured fiddlers . Stuart plays with a number of local dance bands, teaches both privately and at workshops, and organizes the annual Fiddlers Showcase Concert at Northwest Folklife.
Bríd Nowlan has been playing fiddle in Seattle for several years. Although Irish and from a family of Irish fiddlers, she plays American fiddle music. Bríd recently completed an apprenticeship with local fiddler Gil Kiesecker, through the auspices of the Washington State Arts Commission [http://www.arts.wa.gov/folk-arts/index.shtml]. Her work on WOTFA’s productions allows her to indulge her interests in local history and traditional music. Bríd plays in and around Seattle with the band Tinker’s Dram. She teaches the junior fiddle class for District 6 of the Washington Old Time Fiddlers Association and is the house fiddler for Phil Williams’ guitar class at WOTFA’s annual workshop.
