wilco USA - Millions of Unknown Fiddlers? (18) Millions of Unknown Fiddlers? 27 Mar 07

I live in Southeast Tennessee in USA. This is in Appalachian Mountain area. I'm very involved in traditioanl music, having started an acoustic music club four years ago, and I operate an "old-time" music store. We've had about 2500 people go through the open jams.
   My store is in Red bank, a small community near Chattanooga. There are five old-time fiddlers who live within a few blocks of my store, and none of them knew one another!!!! Two of them live less than 100 yards apart!!! They have lived here for years. The store and the jams have given them an opportunity to meet one another.
   I kind of expected this for guitar players, but I never expected to find this many fiddlers. I have four fiddle teachers in the shop (Sometimes I think I have gone to heaven!!!!)
    Why so many fiddlers?
