Alison Krauss and Union Station

From Geartome

Alison Krauss

From Acoustic Guitar Magazine: "Alison Krauss can’t trace her fiddle’s origins. She’s had it since she was 21 years old, when the widow of a Louisville, Kentucky, violin dealer who’d long admired Alison’s playing arranged for her to have it."
