Texas Style: Film Facts

1986, Betacam SP
28 minutes, Color
Description: "Texas Style" is an intimate look at rural Texas culture and the traditional fiddle music played on its back roads. With spirited rhythms and guitar accompaniment, Texas fiddling is a crowd pleaser that has influenced western swing and folk music across the country. This film centers on three generations of Westmoreland family fiddlers. From the elder H.D. Westmoreland to his grandson Wes III, already a state champion, we see the evolution of Texas fiddling.
Featuring: H. Westmoreland, Sr., Jim "Texas Shorty" Chancellor, J. Overton, Esther Overton, Valerie Morris, Julie Morris, Vane Elms, Cari Elms, Bryant Houston, Eithne Hannigan, Wes Westmoreland, Robbin Westmoreland, Andrea Cantrell
