"There is no other book I have read that sheds so much insight into fiddle styles in general, not just Missouri. Missouri is a state with one of the richest fiddle heritages and the list of musicians in this book is seemingly endless. This is a must read for anyone interested in digging deeper into the world of fiddling and not just Appalachian, contest, or festival style fiddling."         Bob Buckingham
