Little House on the Prairie, the autobiographical book series by Laura Ingalls Wilder, holds in its pages a comprehensive review of 19th-century American folk music via the very real character of Charles “Pa” Ingalls (1836-1902), a highly acclaimed fiddler of the time and Laura’s own non-fictional father. For the first time, in January 2012, a concert based on this music was performed before a live audience at the Loveless Barn just outside of Nashville, TN for broadcast by the PBS television network. PA’S FIDDLE: THE MUSIC OF AMERICA, the PBS special broadcast—an effort co-produced by Dean Butler (“Almanzo” on the Little House on the Prairie TV show) and esteemed musicologist Dale Cockrell (President of Pa’s Fiddle Recordings)—will air throughout the nation this June during pledge-drive season and will be available for national broadcast over the next two years.
