Ashe County Fiddlers Convention, August 6 & 7!!!
This Friday and Saturday it's the 40th Annual Ashe Bluegrass & Old Time Fiddlers Convention at Ashe County Park, Jefferson, NC. This is where I grew up and attended the first one with my Dad (and many of them over the years) I am happy to be going back to serve as MC, along with my good friend, Harold Mitchell. Over $3,600 in prizes awarded to Bluegrass and Old Time Bands and Individuals and Youth. On Saturday afternoon, there will be a Terry Baucom Banjo workshop offered, with all participants receiving a free copy of Terry's DVD-Driving With The Duke. Camping in the rough available. This would be a nice stop and good warm-up to the Galax Convention, as we are less than an hour from there. Full details can be found at www.ashefiddlers.com. Come out for a fun time, sponsored by the Jeffersons Rotary Club.
