First Saturday Lecture: "Fiddler's Dream: Missouri's Continuing Heritage of Traditional Fiddle and Dance"

For more than four decades, Howard Marshall has been devoted to conserving, studying and carrying on traditional fiddle music. A member of a pioneer Randolph County family and a retired University of Missouri professor of art history, Marshall has played fiddle since the late 1960s. He notes that there has been a fiddler in every generation of his family since at least 1830.

Marshall's performances focus on music he inherited from master old-time fiddlers. Marshall also writes about the history of fiddling, produces CDs by Missouri fiddlers, and recently reissued a book and double CD called "'Now That's a Good Tune:' Masters of Traditional Missouri Fiddling." Howard will perform some tunes as part of the lecture.
