Ádám István „Icsán” Csoóri Sándor (Jr) writes on the outstanding fiddler from the Transylvanian village of Szék. As well as being an important teacher and role model for the young musicians from Budapest who started the táncház movement, this man was a fiddler from a traditional musician family who was raised by a prímás, and raised his own children to be musicians as well. He grew up in the time before TV and tape machines. Though he passed away in the 80's, his music, thanks to modern technology, lives on in recordings.
