     Beverley Conrad has been playing the fiddle since the age of six.  She plays mainly by ear and had the good fortune of an early training that included listening to her grandfather, Ray Orin Conrad, play music with other old time musicians, such as Jehile Kirkuff, in the parlor of his farmhouse in upstate New York.  She now uses the same violin he played at country-dances and fairs during the early part of the twentieth century.  She also learned some techniques and tunes from Melvin Wine at his home in West Virginia and learned tunes and techniques from Pennsylvania fiddler, Cliff Mayfield.  She has a large repertoire of old tunes and plays them much the same as the fiddle players of an earlier era who recognized these as dance tunes and delighted themselves and their audiences with the rendering of a pretty melody.  This is just a partial list of the tunes she can play.
     Luke Glick can play pretty much any tune he wants.
