Pa's Fiddle

Remember how Pa's fiddle brightened the lives of the Ingalls family in all the places they lived? The fiddle is now stored in the museum of Ingalls artifacts at the home of Almanzo and Laura (Ingalls) Wilder in Mansfield, Missouri. We saw it when we were there in 1990. Once a year they bring the fiddle out and play it. This recording was made in September 2008. It's too bad they didn't have a bearded man who looked like Pa to play it. But if you close your eyes and just listen to the music you can imagine you're lying in bed falling asleep to the sound of Pa's fiddle.
