I’ve been trying to listen to as much fiddle music as I can because I think listening a lot will help me become stronger on the instrument. Recently I came across some videos featuring a fiddler from Seattle named Vivian Williams. I have really been enjoying her fiddling. In most of the videos, she performs with her husband Phil on guitar.
I don’t know anything about regional fiddle traditions out in Washington state. Her fiddling reminds me of midwest fiddling more than Appalachian old time. Here are Phil and Vivian Williams performing a tune called Jean Lafitte (or is it Jean Latiff?). There are numerous videos featuring her fantastic fiddling if you want to check them out further.
