Stelle Elam is just one of many wonderful fiddlers whose music is documented in the Book and 3 CD set Dear Old Illinois, compiled by Garry Harrison and Jo Burgess. Check it out at
This is the Fiddle Book of the year and maybe of the decade, maybe of the century, 'cos its the first and it will be pretty hard to come up with something better -- Claire and Walt, y'all better be working hard.
But help Claire and Walt out with the publication of Claire's fiddle tune transcriptions http://www.brandywinefriends.org/milliner.php
Claire Milliner and Walt Koken, that is.
Meanwhile Dear Old Illinois is a tremendous collection of songs and tunes from downstate Illinois and this collection will keep fiddlers busy for at least a century.
