Harry Bolick, Fiddle


Harry actually mastered the fiddle in Brooklyn, playing with the local accomplished players there: “I am almost totally self taught, learning ‘on the job’ while I played, as well as from the classic recordings of the 1920's-30's…The Brooklyn players were inspired by regular sessions with the Red Clay Ramblers from North Carolina, who were in town for an extended run in the play "Diamond Studs.” In addition to the many house parties and sessions, playing on the streets, public regular jam sessions, coffeehouse concerts and square dances, we would all go to many southern fiddle festivals.”

Born in Mississippi, he has focused on, performed, recorded, and taught the classic fiddle tunes from Mississippi.  The University Press of Mississippi has published his book, co-authored by Stephen T. Austin, "Mississippi Fiddle Tunes and Songs from the 1930's." He has 8 recordings to his credit and performs in the "Wahoo String Band", as well as leading duos and bands under his own name. He teaches fiddle and mandolin weekly in Garrison NY and teaches workshops on Mississippi fiddle tunes around the US.
