MTSU Helps Revive Great Old American Music with "Pa's Fiddle" Project
MTSU is playing a key role in bringing the
old-time fiddle music enjoyed by Charles "Pa" Ingalls alive.
Recording the early American music is the specialty of Dr. Dale
Cockrell, director of MTSU's Center for Popular Music. Cockrell is a
scholar of the songs embedded in the "Little House on the Prairie"
books written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Some of the more popular
songs were featured in a recorded PBS pledge-drive special that will
begin a two-year broadcast run in June. MTSU professors and students
worked behind the scenes to capture video for a documentary, "Inside
Pa's Fiddle." Some of the biggest names in country music gathered
Jan. 6 to record the music at Nashville's Loveless Barn. To learn
