Jefferson's Fiddle is a delightful collection of modern arrangements and readings of classical and traditional repertoire that showcase Thomas Jefferson’s extensive music library. This new recording features the talents of William Coulter on acoustic guitar and Deby Benton Grosjean on fiddle.

Selections include Scottish tunes such as “Robin Adair,” “The Last Time I Came O’er the Moor,” and “Money Musk.” Three compositions composed for Jefferson by Anglo-Italian musician and painter Maria Cosway are included—“Tacite Ombre,” “Ogni Dolce Aura,” and “Sospiri del Mio Cor.” Also featured is traditional music of America and Ireland, as well as “Sarabande and Gigue” by the Italian composer Archangelo Corelli (1653–1713).

Joining William and Deby on Jefferson’s Fiddle are Barry Phillips, cello; Shelley Phillips, English horn and oboe; Lars Johannesson, flute; Jennifer Cass, pedal harp; Linda Burman-Hall, harpsichord; and Neal Hellman, mountain dulcimer.
