Fiddles on Fire

This feature length film explores the exploding popularity of fiddle music by following eight contemporary fiddlers whose excellence in their tradition-based fiddle styles has inspired audiences the world over. Fiddlers representing diverse and evolved traditions come together in a musical convergence, breathing life into lost fiddle tunes and swapping stories. Commentary by folklorists is intercut with musicians’ personal narratives, historical footage, and archival photographs to plumb the meaning and magic of the modern fiddle revival.
