John C. Campbell Folk School - Michael Ismerio with House Band- at Open House

John C. Campbell Community Tuesday

Michael Ismerio with House Band

In 1999 someone came into my record store to post a flyer selling a fiddle for $50. I bought it immediately. It was bright red and made in China, what many people would call a "wall hanger". Luckily I didn't know what a fiddle was supposed to sound like. I took one lesson from a local bluegrass fiddler and went home and played for 8 hours straight. I was obsessed. I feel sorry for my housemates during those early years. Eventually I figured out that I couldn't share walls with anyone and still be a fiddler. It took about five years of playing fiddle before someone first asked me to teach them. It was another five years before I truly felt like I had something to teach. But then it settled in and teaching fiddle has been my longest standing passion at 20 years and counting!
