Howard Marshall is a treasure of rural Missouri history and culture. The drafts of this history however, are not written down on paper. You cannot access them on the internet. You can only catch them strumming off his old fiddle. Howard plays traditional Missouri fiddle tunes that have been passed down from generation to generation of Missouri fiddlers. Not once have these songs been written down. They have just been learned and repeated. A comforting thought in this age of digitally documenting anything and everything we see and here. In ears and muscle memory Howard trusts. And I do, too.
