Join us for a very special presentation of the award-winning Appalachian music documentary Fiddlin’.
Featured musicians Ivy Phillips and Uma & Giri Peters will be in attendance for a Q&A session and performance; further details TBA.
Fiddlin’ is a foot-stomping celebration of true Americana and artistic expression. Filmed in the Appalachian Mountains at the World’s Oldest Fiddler’s Convention, Fiddlin’ shows the uplifting and healing power of music. With multi-generations jamming together and kids holding instruments instead of phones, it truly feels like we have taken a step back in time. Wayne Henderson, a world-renowned luthier known as the “guitar god,” is a master craftsman and enthralling storyteller. His friendship with 11-year-old guitar prodigy, Presley Barker, shows how closely knit a community of musicians can be. The enduring relationship between mentor and prodigy is a testament to music’s power. Young female musicians reveal the difficulties of breaking in to the bluegrass world and are determined to make a difference. We are witness to some incredible flat-foot dancing as well as off-the-charts pickin’ and fiddlin’. And when the top 10 ten finalists are announced in the ultra-competitive guitar competition, we’re in for an exciting finale.
