Music in the Air Book


Music in the Air Somewhere: The Shifting Borders of West Virginia's Fiddle and Song Traditions by Erynn L. Marshall.

This book is a study on conventions that many West Virginians hold dear: fiddle music and folk traditions. It is also a look into the broad influences that folk music has on fiddlers’ compositions and their practices. By exploring the oral histories and music of seven celebrated, life-long West Virginian musicians, Erynn Marshall illuminates the diversity of these music traditions and the culmination of fiddle song genres.
