Willie-O Rufus Guinchard, Newfoundland fiddler (15) RE: Rufus Guinchard, Newfoundland fiddler 28 Jul 10


About 6 minutes into the video he explains the position...he used to sneak his (dad's?) fiddle out when no one was around and hold it in a defensive position...low down tucked into his shoulder so he couldn't be seen holding it from behind. (Don't know how they wouldn't have HEARD it, but that's the story he tells.)

Thanks for the link. Rufus was an inspiration to a lot of young musicians and certainly a beloved figure--a great Newfoundlander and Canadian.

W-O
