about

This recording features the traditional fiddling of Nile Wilson of Bucklin, MO. Nile was born on August 6, 1912 in the New Boston agricultural community of Linn County, Missouri and died at the age of 95 on March 21, 2008. A farm accident with a corn shredder nearly ended his fiddling career. Wilson had to give up fiddling for a time, but recuperated and eventually began playing again. Some tunes in his repertoire were inherited through his family and neighbors' playing. Nile passed away on March 23, 2008 at age95. This album is a must have for any fans of Missouri fiddling as it represents a previously undocumented repertoire of one of Missouri's finest, yet little known players. Great Missouri-style guitar accompaniment by Chris Germain is an added bonus.
