Minnesota Fiddlers

What's the difference between a violin and a fiddle?

A violin sings.

A fiddle dances.

Minnesota Fiddlers


We all know that Bob Dylan and "The Artist Formerly Known as Prince" are from Minnesota, but they are not the only musicians to have come from The Land of 10,000 Lakes.

We have this section to honor some of the extraordinary, yet lesser known, musicians of our state.
