Celebrating the tradition of fiddling
VERMONT- Vermonters are being asked to celebrate the state’s rich tradition of fiddling by documenting fiddlers playing in each of Vermont’s 251 towns in the year 2019.
Photos may be of a planned event such as a summer concert series or family reunion or just a random happening.
The idea of the festival is to not only bring attention to and celebrate Vermont’s great fiddling tradition and the organizations that keep it alive, but to also encourage younger Vermonters to carry on the traditions. Photos can include musicians in addition to the fiddlers, and the musicians do not have to be residents of the town or even of Vermont. The photos will be made public on the website where progress in meeting the festival goal will be monitored.
Folks can submit their photos by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to Fiddlers on the Green, PO Box 644, Townshend, VT 05353.
Those submitting are asked to include the town, date, venue, fiddlers’ names, tune titles, and any other details they can supply. Fiddlers can also submit listings of upcoming events to the website’s calendar.
