The American Violinist

May 9, 2010 13:37

Both sides of my family, Scottish-Irish & German, came to this country in 1720. this link is to a youtube site about the fiddle/violin coming to this country.  when they met the Native American's they took note that the Indians had an instrument that was a bow and played with a bow at times not. A Mouth Bow instrument, love of the land, love of nature, etc., it was enough to form marriage alliances.  I hope that you all here will enjoy this as much as I have.
