Some well-known fiddlers have won this contest, such as Fay Walls
and Alison Krauss. The 2011 state fiddle champion is Charlie Walden
The reason for the Old-Time Fiddlers Association is to preserve
the old-time fiddle music and pass it on to future generations.
If you or someone you know plays a fiddle, join the competition
or encourage them to enter. All ages are welcome, and there are four
categories to choose from. The association would like to have
contestants from all over the state.
Admission is $5 for adults. Children 8 and under are admitted
