Fiddle Contest - Standing Room Only

The 2nd Annual Junior Fiddle Contest at The Bluegrass Shack was a huge success! We had a total of 21 fiddle players, and a packed house of listeners. The Belleville News Democrat was there and video-taped the entire contest (all 2-1/2 hours!). We appeared on the front page of the Local Edition Tuesday. You can see a copy of the article and also hear some of the contestants at http://www.bnd.com/multimedia/video/story/88118.html.

The results of the contest are as follows:
