North Country Fiddlers Head To Kennedy Center

Aug 7, 2012
Chris Jensen for NHPR

Four North Country fiddlers will represent New Hampshire on Wednesday at the Kennedy Center and Library of Congress,  carrying on the tradition of French-Canadian fiddle music.

NHPR’s Chris Jensen reports.

Patrick Ross was three when he played his first song on a fiddle.

It was called “The Rocking Chair Jig.”

Tick tock sound over and over…

Okay, it was simply rocking the back of the bow against the back of the fiddle.
