Stuart Williams and his Sprouts with Claire Takemori, Caller

Stuart Williams is one of the foremost fiddle instructors in the Pacific Northwest, as well as a great show and dance fiddler. He has probably taught the traditional fiddling of this region to more folks than any other fiddle teacher. In his teaching he focuses on the styles of fiddling found in the Northwest, and likes to teach tunes the way he learned them from the numerous traditional fiddlers in this region. The band is made up of his current fiddle and guitar students.
