I stumbled on this YouTube video that aired in 1979 on WTTV show 4 Thought.  This segment features John Smith a fiddler and fiddle maker from Tunnelton, Indiana. He plays Old Dan Tucker and other old tunes, and talks about playing for square dance when he was ten years old and the process of making a fiddle from tree to tune.

Towards the end of the clip, Owen Stout from Paoli joins Smith. This piece captures some fine Indiana fiddle music.
