Keep It Old-Time

Keep It Old-Time by Howard Marshall


This installment brings us from the folk revival during the 1960’s to present day in Missouri fiddling. It shines a light on the rich tapestry of fiddling traditions within Missouri and introduces us to the musicians and families who have carried these traditions forward through ever changing times. Dr. Marshall’s meticulous research and firsthand interviews offer us a personal glimpse into the lives of these musicians, as well as the challenges and triumphs they faced in preserving their musical heritage. Dr. Marshall’s, “Keep It Old-Time” is an essential read for anyone interested in the legacy of Missouri fiddling.
