augusta old time fiddlers reunion

This unique event is a favorite of all who love old-time music. Scores of West Virginia’s master fiddlers, pickers, and singers gather, along with hundreds of local folks and visitors for a weekend of fun, packed with jam sessions throughout the weekend, informal concerts, and renewal of friendships.

On Friday night, October 31, at 8PM, the Fiddlers’ Reunion kicks off with a Halloween square dance. (Costumes are encouraged but not required.) Music will be provided by members of the October Old-Time Week instructors and staff. $8, $5 with student ID. All other events are free.

On Saturday, November 1, the events center around a concert stage in the lounge of the Myles Center for the Arts. From 10:00am to 6:00pm you will be able to enjoy the music of a series of performances by dozens of invited old-time musicians from all over West Virginia. And a freestyle clogging and flatfooting contest will be held on the stage around 4:00pm. Cash prizes will be awarded. Exhibits and sales by instrument vendors will be nearby, and food will be available for purchase. Throughout the day, tune and song swaps feature traditional singers from all over the region, and jam sessions go on far into the night.

The festivities end on a high note Sunday morning, November 2, with a Gospel sing from 10:30-11:30am in the Myles Center lounge.
