This album of 20 tracks features all of the most popular and well-known fiddle tunes. Many of the tracks have been made famous through films and cartoons.  From classics like Dixie Hoedown, The Devil Went Down to Georgia and the Chicken Reel to lilting laments like the Ashokan Farewell (from Ken Burns’ documentary The Civil War) and the beautiful Tennessee Waltz.

    The Fiddle. Congrats to Fet, Simo, John and Mark on an album that is as great as you’ll hear anywhere.

    Picked this CD up on the weekend….a fantastic collection of well played tunes with great arrangments, but the real treat is in the production. Listening to top shelf picking is always a pleasure, even moreso when the instrumentation is as well recorded as this effort. Mike’s fiddle sits perfectly in the mix throughout, and the closer Wendy’s Waltz, is a just beautiful.
    Get out and suppport your Aussie Bluegrass muso’s…this one’s a cracker!
