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.
