Luke Price is a fiddle teacher who also plays with several local bands. He told KATU News someone broke into his locked pickup truck earlier this month and took his only 2 fiddles from behind the front seat.
“I’ve had one of them for probably almost fifteen years and the other one for probably ten years,” said Price. “So you get to know them and they’re kind of like close friends.”
Price says he’s borrowing fiddles from friends in the meantime. He’s scheduled to go on tour in January.
He’s been checking Craigslist to see if the thief is trying to sell the stolen instruments. He wants to hear from anyone who might have seen them.
Price is offering a $300 reward for their return, no questions asked.
