The Contenders: Page 3

41 Jean Carignan

Greatest Fiddler of French-Canadian Music, but also combined elements of Scottish and Irish Fiddling. Certainly one of the greatest North American Fiddlers. Was a friend of Yehudi Menuhin.

42 Eileen Ivers

Fabulous Bronx ex-river dance fiddler

43 Casey Driessen
44 Chris Higbee

Pittsburgh local fiddle player

45 Jason Carter

Has also won bluegrass fiddle player of the year. Plays for del mccoury.

46 Doug Meek

Texas Fiddler puts on a great show - also seen on Penny Gilley and other Branson places. Regular at Fiddler's Frolic Annual Texas Championships. Beautiful inside and out and a good friend.

Wonderful, expressive and energetic fiddler. Amazing warm, caring teacher and performer.

51 Jay Ungar

Jay ungar is a very good fiddle player,

52 Bonnie Rideout
53 Jeremy Abshire

Raw talent. Has an ear for the fiddle and can make it sing. You don't find natural talent like that anymore.

One of the best fidfle players out there. He was on the cover of Fiddlers Magazine in the summer of 2012.

57 Alasdair Fraser

Alasdair doesn't seem to play the fiddle as much as he extends his heart through the instrument and it comes out as perfect music. I keep looking for a fiddler that is even in the same league, is tone, and touch and heart and effortless play are impeccable and inspiring.

One of the finest fiddler and writer of fiddle tunes alive! I can't believe this master isn't on here already.

58 Jacob Bennett

Damn good fiddle player

59 Sara Watkins

What an omission! Nickel Creek is one of the best groups ever assembled. I've seen them twice and they were beyond fantastic both times.

Not to have Sara even on this list is beyond ridiculous. I've seen her twice and she is a fantastic player and entertainer.
