Within fiddle scholarship, the process of transmission whereby tunes and performance styles and techniques are communicated between people, traditions, and generations remains relatively under-researched. While routes of transmission can be readily identified – from nation to nation, region to region, or fiddler to fiddler – the process is rarely examined in any closer detail. This paper will investigate the manifestations of continuous transmission in the context of Scottish fiddle music by considering musical lineage and published collections of tunes dating from 1700 to 1981.
