Bowing Down Home

This website encompasses the full range of Island fiddling as it survived into the last decade of the twentieth century and the first decade of the twenty-first. About 120 Island fiddlers are featured – anglophone and francophone alike – representing all the Island's diverse regional playing styles, along with literally hundreds of different tunes. And through a substantial collection of oral history selections, visitors to the site have the opportunity both to get a sense of the artists’ personalities and to learn how they felt about their music and social milieu.
