Forgotten Upper-Midwest Music- Special Episode: Elmo Wick

This video documents elements of the presentation Walter Sigtermans made on "Elmo Wick and the Fiddlers of Crow Country, Minnesota". This information was presented at workshops put on by Marypat Kleven and the Minnesota State Fiddlers Association in 2016, held in three locations across the state.  This one is a bit longer, but there was so much great info to share.


  1. Bravo! What an excellent piece about Elmo and good interpretation of his work!

    I have shared a copy of one of Elmo's tune books that he sent to me in 2000 that he called "Norwegian Emigrants Old time Dance Music for Fiddle by Elmo Wick" containing 116 tunes with Clawhammer Mike. I'm glad there is a group playing his tunes! Carry on!
