Three Generations of Champion Texas Fiddlers
The Solomon Family THREE GENERATIONS OF CHAMPION TEXAS FIDDLERS The great fiddle music on this CD comes from the hands, heads and hearts of Ervin Solomon, his brother Jim, his sons,Vernon and Norman, and his grandson, Mike, Vernon's son - three generations of one family of truly outstanding Texas fiddle players. Collectively they won prizes at too many fiddle contests to count, contests both in and outside of Texas. More important their playing enriched the lives of their many friends and neighbors where they lived and worked: they provided the music and entertainment for square dances, school events, neighborhood get-togethers, family reunions, funerals, church services, benefits, nursing homes, weddings and any other number of social gatherings. In this they epitomize the very best in traditional music - providing all with good times and good fun...and enjoying themselves tremendously at the same time. Unfortunately each passed on by 1997; the great performances here ensure that future generations will also enjoy their music.
