Fiddlin' on the 88th Fiddler's Grove Ole Time Fiddlers and Bluegrass Festival Anniversary

Fiddler's GroveUnion Grove, NC -- In 1924, H.P. Van Hoy, a school teacher and a fiddler, thought of a good 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 25-27 2012, the third generation of Van Hoy descendents will open the gate for the 88th iteration of that acclaimed bluegrass 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. Since its inception nearly a century ago, this fiddling event has focused on traditional American music.
