SUMMARY
The book is a documented history of Hungarian-Slovak Gypsies that came to America over 120 years ago, they brought to America the traditional Hungarian Gypsy music they and their ancestors played in Europe for hundreds of years. They are directly linked to Europe's finest Gypsy musicians. From the villages of Hungary, this music was brought to America to make our hearts sing. It is part of world roots music. Piskor tells us,using words and striking photographs,the inside story about his Gypsy family and friends, and warns us of cultural treasures we may be losing. --Professor Steve Balkin, Roosevelt University I encourage you to acquire a book long overdue when concerning American-Hungarian music. Gypsy Violins is a significant historical document for anyone who has danced or listened to a csárdás or any other Magyar folk music. --Tibor Check Jr. William Penn Life Magazine Congratulations on your new book! Incredibly valuable. --Professor Ian Hancock Ph.D.
