Part memoir, part travel narrative, and part music history, Fiddle: One Woman, Four Strings, and 8,000 Miles of Music (Citadel/Kensington, 2010) chronicles my journeys through fiddle subcultures around the country, from Ohio to Tennessee to Texas to Louisiana, and my sometimes stumbling attempts to become a fiddler. It's a book about Scottish, Irish, old-time, klezmer, Cajun, and bluegrass fiddling, and it's also about divorce, improvisation, evolution, and change.
