Peter White Collection of New Mexico Fiddle Music by Peter White( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The collection consists of 43 CDs containing recordings of New Mexico fiddle music made by Peter White. Many of the fiddlers recorded were fiddlers whom White met at contests. In other cases the recordings are taken at the home of the fiddler. The majority of music types featured in this collection are old time New Mexico, Texas, and Appalachian fiddle tunes, country western music, Anglo-American, and Celtic folk songs, both vocal and instrumental. Waltzes, reels, polkas, schottisches, two-steps, square dance tunes, breakdowns, hornpipes, jibs, rags, ballads, Irish and Scottish folk songs, etc. are included. There are also some traditional Spanish and Mexican songs in the collection, a few sung, but mostly instrumental. Some of the Spanish melodies have been adapted or Americanized, and are played in the old Anglo fiddle style. White surveys the stylistic differences between Appalachian fiddle tunes and the styles that existed in New Mexico, which most closely resemble the Texas style of fiddle playing. Other instruments represented include banjo, guitar, mandolin, piano and voice. The recordings also include discussions which reveal details about the lives of the performers; origin and evolution of folk song melodies and lyrics; stylistic differences among tunes; violin bowing techniques such as shuffle, stitching, hokum, etc. During this time White was teaching a UNM class in the Honors Program on New Mexican music. He held regular sessions throughout the semester at his home and invited fiddlers and other musicians to play tunes for the class. Those recordings are also represented here. This collection forms part of the John Donald Robb Archive of Southwestern Music
