Melvin Wine 

Posted 10/27/2006 4:39:18 PM

Fiddler Melvin Wine was born in Braxton County West Virginia in 1909. His extensive repertoire and rustic fiddling style represent a long tradition of music from within his family and community. Melvin is acknowledged today for his powerful live performances and his willingness to teach his music and share it with others. Recipient of the first Vandalia Award, Melvin was also awarded the National Endowment for the Arts' prestigious National Heritage Fellowship in 1991. Photograph by Michael Keller.

What kind of machine is he on? I'm reading his biography now--Fiddling Way Out Yonder, the Life and Music of Melvin Wine by Drew Beisswenger. Drew also wrote the Mel Bay book on Ozarks Fiddle Music. I'm just getting to know his music, but you can't seem to get his recordings easily.
