Friday June 22 2012

from around the country 

they rosin up that bow and step into the spotlight

champions, virtuosos, sensations, prodigies

fantastical fiddlers, masterful musicians

fast and furious fingers fly

waltzing down the neck

reeling across the strings

toes up hoe down

polka, mazurka, bluegrass

just spectacular!

If you've never been to the Weiser, Idaho's National Oldtime Fiddlers' Contest, you're missing something phenomenal.

The way the fingers fly across the frets and strings - that just ain't right. It's beyond incredible. Dang it's good!

(this gal was my pick of the Young Adults - I think she finished 3rd)

  1. Nothing like good fiddle music to make you want to get up and dance!

  2. I adore that kind of music! Just wonderful!

  3. Never been to the one in Idaho, but I just went to one in Utah. Amazing! So much fun!! (Thanks for sharing the pics too.)
