McClurg used to be a little town. Now it’s just a crossroads out on two hair-pin highways. But every Monday night the old storefront fills up with musicians who’ve been meeting here for decades to play Missouri old-time music. Brought over by Irish and Scottish immigrants, the tunes have been passed down from fiddler to fiddler in the Ozarks for literally centuries… but this music is fragile now, as the old-timers die off, and take the songs with them. Can a new generation of young fiddlers maintain the link to the past?
