About Dr. Lee Bidgood

Dr. Lee Bidgood’s research and performing is focused on bluegrass, old-time, sacred, and early music. While at UNC-Chapel Hill, he was mandolinist with the Steep Canyon Rangers, and these days he plays fiddle, viola, and viola da gamba with all kinds of groups. With a PhD in music from the University of Virginia, his work explores string music from new angles; in addition to teaching courses in music history, ethnomusicology, and Appalachian Studies at ETSU, he leads a mandolin orchestra. He has written a book on his research Czech Bluegrass: Notes from the Heart of Europe (Illinois, 2017) and coproduced the documentary film Banjo Romantika (2015) with Shara Lange.
