Traditional Tunes

Since 1976, the staff of Fret & Fiddle in St. Albans has been buying, selling and trading musical instruments while fostering a sense of community among the region’s old-time and bluegrass musicians. Its showroom, filled with pre-owned instruments with stories to tell but plenty of life yet to live, is well worth seeing.  Fret & Fiddle also gives lessons on claw hammer banjo playing, along with fiddle instruction in bluegrass, old-time and Irish styles.
