Byron Berline

Craig Havighurst

Fiddle player Byron Berline has had a wide-ranging career, from Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys to the country rock movement to the recording studios of Los Angeles, where he played sessions for The Rolling Stones, The Eagles and Elton John. Since closing that chapter in the mid 1990s, Berline has owned and operated the Double Stop Fiddle Shop in Guthrie, OK, a fine instrument dealer, performance venue and community hub. In February, a fire tore through the 1901 building, destroying a lifetime’s collection of artifacts.
