Passing the Music Down
by Sarah Sullivan and Barry Root




Overview -
A warmhearted ode to an American musical tradition and to generational ties, told in lyrical free verse with atmospheric illustrations.

A young boy travels to the hills of Appalachia to meet the old-time fiddle player whose music he has admired, and so sparks a friendship that will forge a bond between generations. The boy develops under the man's care and instruction, just as seedlings grow with spring rain and summer sun. From playing on the front porch to performing at folk festivals, the two carry on the tradition of passing the music down. This touching, lyrical story, inspired by the lives of renowned fiddlers Melvin Wine and Jake Krack, includes an author's note and suggested resources for learning about the musicians and the music they love.
