This week, we wrote a feature on one of the most instrumental fiddle teachers in the Inland Northwest, JayDean Ludiker. While much of what Ludiker teaches, at least to beginners, are traditional folk melodies, the fiddle has seen much of a resurgence thanks to bluegrass and folk music increasing in popularity over the past decade.
Here are five fiddlin' bands Ludiker recommends you check out:
This band is a jazz-grass band out of Austin, Texas. It includes Ludiker’s son Dennis on mandolin. The band is playing the Five Suns Bluegrass Festival this weekend in Moses Lake.
