More Info:

Curated by 78-rpm record collector Pat Conte, The Secret Museum of Mankind: Atlas of Instruments - Fiddles, Vol. 1 continues the legendary series and seeks to show the diverse range of fiddle sounds and styles developed and practiced across the globe. The compilation, drawn from Conte's pioneering and remarkable personal collection of 78-rpm discs recorded in the 1920's-1950's, presents fiddle music recorded across the world from Crete to Madagascar, Mexico, England, Sicily, Norway, India, the USA, Cape Verde, China and more. The album is available via digital download and on vinyl, in a beautiful gatefold package. It includes a liner notes booklet by curator Pat Conte, original drawings of rare and unique fiddles in Conte's collection, by artist Jeff Tocci, and beautifully remastered audio by Don Fierro. Additionally, the interior gatefold design features a selection of historic images of fiddlers, also curated by Conte and drawn from his collection.
