Who is the next class of Old Time Fiddlers and Musicians we will hail as legends?

What is going to be left to the next generation? Who are they going to recieve the tunes from? A CD or an MP-3 file or a living person who taught you a song person to person?

Who will they talk about when they recall the fiddlers and and the players and the music?

Will there be many people who even remembers Missouri Fiddlers let alone hear one on occasion?

Will this traditional music survive much longer as music performed live by people who play what they love or will it just be a footnote to history and what culture was once?

You could be pessimistic. Or optimistic. Think about how far it's traveled thus far?
It survived a long time.
