One of the highlights of the Albemarle County Fair is the annual fiddle contest, but this year, the event was held significantly earlier than usual. The fair has been moved up a month earlier, to August 2 through August 7. That coincides with the Galax Fiddlers Convention, one of the largest events of its kind in the country.
So, a decision was made to hold the 21st installment of the contest on Saturday, May 28. CPN was there to record the event. Today we’re posting the Juniors contest, and tomorrow we’ll post the seniors event. Thanks to the Gravity Lounge for having a great sound set-up for us to plug into.
