Here is the second compilation of odd tracks from various LPs in my collection. Once again, the majority are from fiddle competitions in the late 1970s, notably the Golden Fiddle Awards. Most of the fiddlers have not been featured in this blog before, Yla Steven and Bill Brian being the exceptions. However, the fiddling is still of a high standard, and it's worth giving it a listen.
