A master of New England fiddling who is a craftsman of violins has been named New Hampshire’s artist laureate. Rodney Miller of Antrim was confirmed to the post Wednesday by the Executive Council. He will serve a two-year term, starting this month. Miller plays widely at dances and is known as one the country’s finest dance fiddlers. New England fiddling is a mix of French-Canadian and Celtic music styles played primarily for social dancing, including contredanse. Miller also crafts violins; most of his albums have been recorded with him playing instruments he has made. Established in 1997, the position of New Hampshire’s artist laureate is honorary and receives no compensation.
