A 3rd-generation fiddle player, Ida Mae Specker was born in a one-room cabin in the woods of Vermont. Along with her older sister Lila, she learned to play the fiddle at a very early age from her father, John Specker. The trio became renowned for “playing a rambunctious version of old-time music that owes as much to punk rock as Appalachia, at least in attitude.” (Seven Days VT).
