The Tunes of Gideon Stove
Thomas Stove
Gideon Stove, born in 1874, was indisputably the foremost Shetland fiddler, violinist and composer of tunes throughout his lifetime. Entirely self-taught, he courageously gave up his trade as a baker in 1909 to make a living from his musical abilities through teaching and playing for dancing. Over four decades he gave violin lessons to hundreds of Lerwick children and played for public dances in the days when a fiddler and a pianist – unamplified – were all that was needed for a good night’s enjoyment. Equally accomplished in the classical violin repertoire he led local orchestras for many years and his solo performances at concerts were always acclaimed.
