Description:

"At dances, which followed all weddings, the music was usually a single fiddle, in Brecksville played by a popular mulatto gentleman. Within the home circle, Uncle Owen's wife, Aunt Frank, did the playing. As a child she had learned to hold the fiddle vertically on her knee, and she continued to do so throughout her life. She used to include in her repertoire such tunes as 'Haste to the Wedding,' 'Arkansas Traveler,' and 'Turkey in the Straw.' Once, the younger people took her to town to see a great violinist, but Uncle Owen said he preferred to hear his wife play, because the fellow started to play a good tune and never finished it." - Out in Brecksville
