In 2001, the Florida Department of State honored fiddler Richard Seaman with a Folk Heritage Award. The award was in recognition of Seaman’s old-time fiddling and of his gifts as a storyteller, as well as his contributions to Florida’s next generation of fiddlers. This chapter explores Seaman’s life and art, and his contributions as a fiddler and storyteller in shaping Florida’s soundscape. It looks at Seaman’s “old-time fiddling” style and old-time music, as well as the role of fiddling in Florida’s folk culture.
