Fiddler's Grove

Fiddler's Grove Ole Time Fiddler's and Bluegrass Festival May 23-25

Cockman Family Bluegrass BandUnion Grove, NC -- In 1924, H.P. Van Hoy, a schoolteacher and fiddler, thought of an innovative way to raise money for Union Grove School; he would hold a fiddler's convention. The convention became a tradition, carried on in recent years by Harper A. Van Hoy, H. P. Van Hoy's son. On May 23-25, 2014, the fourth generation of Van Hoy descendants will open the gate for the 90th iteration of that acclaimed musical institution: a weekend of competition, performances by invited musicians, workshops, jamming, and the renewal of years-long friendships. This is the oldest fiddler's contest in North America, acclaimed a Local Legacy by the Library of Congress, icon of the genre, and not to be missed. The Fiddler's Grove Ole Time Fiddler's and Bluegrass Festival is held at 1819 West Memorial Hwy., Union Grove, NC.
