Traveler Series Bluegrass Fiddle

Description

THE TRAVELER SERIES

Welcome to Red Room Audio’s Traveler Series, an ongoing collection of boutique sample libraries featuring traditional world instruments faithfully recorded on location from destinations around the globe.

Traveler Series libraries focus on delivering a genuine purity that can only be captured where the instrument and musical style originated, preserving its true character and history. We seek out a region’s most skilled and renowned performers; amazing folks with stories and bloodlines who live and breathe traditional provincial music. We leave with an education and appreciation for their culture and the role these beautiful instruments serve (as well as a tale or two of our own). We hope our Traveler Series adds an authentic native spirit to your music.

BLUEGRASS FIDDLE

Ronnie Stewart

Bluegrass fiddling is a distinctive American style characterized by bold, bluesy improvisation, off-beat “chopping”, and sophisticated use of double stops and old-time bowing patterns. Notes are often slid into, a technique seldom used in Celtic styles. Bluegrass fiddlers tend to ignore the rules that violinists follow: they hold the fiddle the “wrong” way and often don’t use the chin & shoulder rests.

We journeyed right to the heart of the Bluegrass State for our Bluegrass Fiddle – Clay City, Kentucky – to the private studio of one of the most renowned names in Bluegrass music, Rickey Wasson. Rickey hooked us up with a true Bluegrass fiddle legend, multi-instrumentalist Ronnie Stewart. Ronnie has appeared on hundreds of records and toured with some of the genre’s biggest names. Working with Rickey & Ronnie was an honor and an absolute blast.
