Welcome to the December issue of Fiddle Sessions®!

FiddleSessions® is a monthly online magazine exploring various facets of Fiddle music. Each month, this "webzine" will feature articles by composers, teachers, or performers. Visitors to the site can learn about the featured authors' publications, background, or performance / workshop schedule. A free printable music sample will be included in at least one of the articles each month.

This issue features the second in what I hope will be a series of articles about the mysteries of bowing in Southern traditional fiddling by one of its top practitioners, Brad Leftwich. Paul Anastasio continues his series ongets into the arcane topic of just how your bow arm should work. Cookie Segelstein continues her series about the common modes and their use in klezmer violin. And, finally, I get off a screed about the current state of fiddle contests, that I hope will ruffle some feathers.

I am soliciting responses to the articles in this webzine in the hope of a long term exchange of views. If you have corrections or comments, positive or negative, about the pieces in this fiddle magazine, please contact the editor at archduke@stacyphillips.com.

It may even be possible to create an article from your response.
