Melvin Wine, Copen, West Virginia
Taken at Kate's wedding, 1991
Fiddle class at the Port Townsend Festival of Fiddle Tunes in 1982
We are sad to pass along the news that Melvin Wine has passed away. He
had a massive stroke on Friday, and died this morning (Sunday, March 16, 2003)
about 7 AM, in a hospital near his home in Braxton County, WVa.
Melvin would have turned 94 next month, and had lived a full and happy
life, with a large and loving family. His greater music family will
remember not only his fiddling, but his generosity in sharing his music,
and the strength of his spirit which always shone out from his eyes and
We'll miss him.....
