The Fiddler’s Dance

La Fiocco traces the development of courtly and folk music of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, from the court of James I of England (James VI of Scotland), to the ducal court of Mantua, to the violinists of Louis XIV’s Versailles, and of Restoration England. Our final destination is Colonial and Federal America, where we will even visit with the African-American fiddlers who descended from Thomas Jefferson, Sally Hemings, and the circle of Monticello, an amazing journey indeed!
