The Crooked Tune

Documentary | 75' minutes | 2017 | HD | USA


The Crooked Tune follows Fiddler Dave Bing over eight years from the hills of West Virginia to the pubs in England as he performs and teaches the old-time tunes that he learned from elders who have long passed. By following Dave, we see performers young and old as well as how the Celtic tradition work with the West Virginia style. We also see how Bing struggles with preserving the music but wonders if the context of old time is getting lost in a digital modern world.
