George Wilson

George Wilson has played fiddle since 1971 and played guitar and bass for even longer. He probably knows close to 1000 fiddle tunes, but only remembers 300 of them. His favorite styles and biggest influences are Cape Breton and Quebecois styles, but he enjoys playing old-time, Scandinavian, Irish, Shetland, and Scottish music, which are all what make up New England Fiddling. He played with Allan Block in the 1970’s, with Fennig’s All-star String Band (featuring Bill Spence on hammered dulcimer) from 1975-2019, did lots of collaborating with David Kaynor, and has played for hundreds of contradances, concerts, and school groups with a number of other excellent musicians. He is the director of the Capital District Megaband in Albany NY and also teaches private students.
