This "Meet the Artist" presentation, part of a Fall and Spring concert series, was made possible by the collaborative efforts of Canyon Records, a local independent record label, and the Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary. This partnership is a continuation of the recent One World, Many Voices: The Artistry of Canyon Records exhibition of photography, music and concerts from the artists of Canyon Records.

PUEBLO GRANDE MUSEUM AUXILIARY PRESENTATION
WEDNESDAY, MAY 2
6:30 TO 8 P.M.
Speaker: San Carlos Apache Fiddler
Topic: Anthony Belvado
Anthony has been making fiddles for about 40 years, getting his start after high school. A postcard image of a long-haired Apache man holding the instrument in a 19th-century photo studio piqued his interest. He went to his grandfather, Salton Reede Sr., who he knew made such fiddles, and asked him about it. A tutorship grew from there, with his grandfather guiding him through the making of the instrument.
Belvado makes his fiddles from agave, using the base of the woody stalk for larger versions of the fiddle, with the narrower portions converted to more traditional-sized models. Other fiddle-makers have used aspen or walnut, but Belvado goes for materials that grow nearby. It takes him about an hour and a half to hollow out an agave that is split in half, with the sides then rejoined for the fiddle. When he tried hollowing out a stalk without splitting it, he said, it took him about two weeks.
This event is free and open to the public, made possible by the Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary. Donations are welcome.
