This was taken at the Green Springs Civil War Days in Green Springs Ohio on May 18th.
Fiddler Howard Schiegel has been playing the fiddle for over seventy years. During those years he has taught hundreds of people how to play at least one song on a fiddle.
To date,his youngest student was six and his oldest nighty-eight. Mr. Schiegel has devised his own method of musical notation and has played and rebuilt hundreds of fiddles.
He has performed at many festival,fairs, historical reenactments (this is where I met him) heritage school days, and historical societies. Howard was born and lives in Fremont Ohio on the family farm that dates back to the mid 1800's.
It was such a pleasure to meet Howard and listen to his music. His spirit was soaring as you can see the joy on his face as he plays.
