In Their Words: "'Blind Fiddler' is a song I learned when I first started playing guitar. I suppose the haunting, minor melody was part of the attraction, but the message has always had a profound effect on me. My dad was a strong union man — shop steward — at work and had his noise broken in the Long Beach Longshore man strike in the '30s.” — Dan Wheetman
