Fiddling Way Out Yonder: The Life and Music of Melvin Wine (American Made Music) [Drew Beisswenger] on linawycatuzy.gq Series: American Made Music. Editorial Reviews. From Library Journal.

Fiddling Way Out Yonder: The Life and Music of Melvin Wine ( American Made Music Series) - Kindle edition by Drew Fiddling Way Out Yonder: The Life and Music of Melvin Wine (American Made Music Series) Kindle Edition.

Melvin Wine's life history is also interesting. Like many fiddlers, Wine stopped playing for a long period of time but then decided to pick up the instrument once again. Beisswenger explains "the missing years," and the analysis provides insight into tensions between religious sentiments and the musical spirit. The excellent transcriptions of Wine's complex playing round out this thorough study of a folk music tradition. The author has a rich understanding of fiddling, and the transcribed tunes are excellent resources for understanding this particular style of fiddling.

The book is an excellent tribute to a great fiddler. Old-time fiddlers might welcome a future publication of all fifty-two transcriptions separately. The book is carefully organized—the first chapter devoted to the general history of the region followed by three chapters on Wine's life, two chapters describing his approach to performance and his fiddling style, and a final chapter giving the tune transcriptions and analyses. The biographical chapters are particularly well chosen, as they divide his life into stages that illustrate on a larger scale the course of Appalachian musical traditions as they entered and endured the twentieth century.

In chapter 2, involving family and childhood, we learn the importance of legacy—how the art of fiddling is passed from one generation to the next. In chapter 3 we learn about his experience as a working musician, with a close look at the Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide.
