Building and playing homemade fiddles has been a part of the American musical tradition from the country’s earliest years, and even before. Drawing upon their ancestors’ European roots, settlers from the Appalachian mountains to the woods of Wisconsin to the great deserts of the southwest turned their hands to crafting handmade fiddles from whatever they had at hand. Cigar boxes, packing crates and many other implements were re-purposed to make music, and the tradition still continues today.
