Hardiman the Fiddler Your instruments' fate after you die (55* d) RE: Your instruments' fate after you die 25 Jul 00


Being as mine is an older violin, ca 1880-1900, and being as I bought in from a music shop second-handed, I guess the original owner is dead, and probably the second owner as well! I'm grateful that they passed the instrument along, even if it did sit in granny's attic for awhile. I would like to think that some day my fiddle will fall into hands that love it as much as I do; maybe those hands will be able to play it more beautifully than I do. My kids? If they suddenly had an interest in the fiddle, I would be happy to give it to them, but that is not on the horizon. I just would weep to see my fiddle become a decoration for someone's dining room wall.
