- Old Time
Jon Anderson started playing old-time music at 7, when his father taught him to play banjo on his “Pete Seeger” model Vega. Since then, he has been an active performer, teacher, and student of Old-Time music, winning awards for his fiddling, and producing an album of traditional Round Peak fiddle and banjo duets with Tom Collins, “Sinful to Flirt” in 2016. Jon has produced an occasional YouTube series, “Bowing Lights for Old-Time Fiddle” using innovative animations to demonstrate the unique motions in southern old-time fiddle bowing. In 2009, Jon was awarded a grant through the State of New Hampshire to study traditional New England fiddle styles with Rodney Miller, comprising old-time, Irish, and French and Anglo Canadian influences.
