New York State Fiddler
A New York State Tradition
Sharing fiddle tunes commonly played in New York State, New England, and Canada is what Chad enjoys the most. He often performs with the Central Chapter of the New York State Old Tyme Fiddlers Association, but also performs individually at various fiddling events, libraries, historical societies, festivals, living history museums, town parks, campgrounds, dance halls, community centers and senior facilities. In 2016 Chad was inducted into the New York State Fiddlers Hall of Fame. He's been a member and supporter of the New York State Old Tyme Fiddlers Association for many years. In addition to playing a variety of fiddle styles, Chad plays many of the the old tunes that were once played in small, rural communities throughout New York State.
