>John W. Summers-Indiana Fiddler


Here’s a great and out-of-print lp by Indiana fiddler, John W. Summers. Issued by Rounder Records in 1984, it was recorded by banjo player, painter and folklorist Art Rosenbaum and by Summers’s fiddling friend, Judge Dan White. I took pictures of the booklet that came with the record so that you can read extensively about this great fiddler.

  5. >This has the same tones and recording timbres as something like the music on the film The Outlaw Josey Wales. I've wanted an old fiddler rendition of "Rose of Alabama" and "Dixie" for a long time. Any ideas? Can you help me?
