15. Fiddler's Grove [Real Player, pdf]
Since 1968 Fiddler's Grove has been the site of an annual fiddle
competition. The competition originally begun as a fundraiser by a
schoolteacher in 1924 at Union Grove School in North Carolina, but was
relocated to Fiddler's Grove due to increasingly large and "unwieldy"
crowds. This exhibit tells the story of Fiddler's Grove through magazine
articles, festival posters, and, of course, audio and video clips from
festival. Visitors should click on "Exhibit", on the homepage, to see an
interactive timeline that can be clicked on to view materials from the
chosen time period. Visitors can also navigate the exhibit from
beginning to end by clicking on the "Next" arrow on the far right side
of the page. Those visitors interested in the audio delights of the
exhibit should click on "Sounds". There are six festivals to choose
from, and each has more than a dozen songs to enjoy. The band or
individual playing the song is also listed. The "Video" section offers
a series of enjoyable one- to two-minute film clips, all from a 1994
video called "Fiddler's Grove: A Celebration of Old-Time Music". [KMG]
