The original version of Ole King Cole goes like this:

Good King Cole,

And he call'd for his Bowle,

And he call'd for Fidler's three;

And there was Fiddle, Fiddle,

And twice Fiddle, Fiddle,

For 'twas my Lady's Birth-day,

Therefore we keep Holy-day

And come to be merry.

We’ll hear three incredible fiddlers: Rachel Barton Pine, Johnny Gandelsman, and Augustin Hadelich on today’s What’s New.

As a founding member of Brooklyn Rider and a member of the Silk Road Ensemble, Johnny Gandelsman has worked with Yo-Yo Ma, Bono, Osvaldo Golijov, David Byrne, Bela Fleck, Kayhan Kalhor, Suzanne Vega, and Anne Sofie Van Otter! Gandelsman has a vast range of creative sensibilities that is singular among today's musicians. The Boston Globe writes "a balletic lightness of touch and a sense of whimsy and imagination".

What’s New is a production of WBAA, a listener supported broadcast service of Purdue University.

John Nasukaluk Clare is comfortable behind a microphone, streaming video or playing violin. A former broadcaster for NPR, John has previously worked with Voice of America, the Canadian Broadcast Corporation and stations in Texas, Kansas, Nevada, California, and Pennsylvania. In 2005, Clare earned the Deems Taylor Award from ASCAP for radio broadcasting, citing his work on 20/20 Hearing. Having performed with famed tenors Luciano Pavarotti and Andrea Bocelli, John has worked with the Mozart Festival Texas, Mid Texas Symphony, Nevada Chamber Symphony, Shreveport Symphony, Abilene Philharmonic and Wichita Symphony Orchestra.
