1) No name, 200 + year old fiddle. Has been a Minnesota fiddle for a very long time. 2) A 2003 fiddle built by Ray DeMeo when he was living in Ely, Minnesota.
I don't know...there's soooo many. Lately I'm into Kentucky stuff like Clyde Davenport and John Salyer. I have also been learning some West Virginia tunes and listening to a bunch of Dwight Diller stuff.

Started playing Irish mandolin around 1993 and then started playing bluegrass around 1995. Saw the Frieghthoppers in Winfield, Kansas in 1997 and made the switch to old time. I just moved to Boulder, CO with my girlfriend Carrie who is a wonderful old-time banjo player. She's from Winton, Minnesota (3 mi northeast of Ely). I am from an unincorporated township near Embarass, Minnesota.
