Thread Name: Midwestern fiddling in the 1850s
Subject: RE: Midwestern fiddling in the 1850s
Thanks, Lighter. That's one of the few such accounts that I've seen in which the writer is not more interested in their own cleverness than in the fiddling; they take some pains to get it right.

Btw, none of those links I gave show exactly the same thing; I believe they all show the left leg over the right, and the fiddle not as far to the right as in the above description.
