Augusta Heritage Center October Old-Time Week

October 16, 2016 @ 8:00 am - October 21, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

October Old-Time Week focuses on West Virginia’s rich traditions of old-time music. Classes meet 9 a.m. – noon, with an afternoon cultural session each day and afternoon classes. Presentations from master artists, late night jam sessions and much more fill out the week. Stay for the Old-Time Fiddlers’ Reunion, October 21-23, a celebration of West Virginia fiddlers. The Reunion kicks off Friday night with a square dance and continues Saturday with performances by West Virginia’s master fiddlers, a flatfoot dance contest, instrument vendors and the Augusta Store. On Sunday, the week wraps up with  a gospel sing in the Robbins Memorial Chapel.

The week wraps up with the 25th Annual Augusta Old-Time Fiddlers’ Reunion (October 21-23) featuring a unique square dance on Friday evening; performances by older generation master fiddlers and younger accomplished fiddlers from all over West Virginia all day Saturday; and a gospel sing on Sunday morning.

All classes are intended for those who can already play their instrument to some extent and are ready to start learning Old-Time style, technique, and repertoire.
