Don't miss the Invitational Fiddling Contest Sunday
The Lincoln County Cowboy Symposium is conducting an inaugural $500 invitational fiddle contest to be held at noon Sunday on the Ray Reed Stage.
“Yes, there is prize money,” music director Dave Alexander said. “But to hold the title of winning a fiddling contest at the most prestigious western swing music venue in the World is what these young fiddlers are competing for. It’s going to be something to see.”
Alexander operates a summer music school in Texas and has invited several of his top students to perform in the contest, which will be judged by professional fiddle players.
Sunday admission to the Cowboy Symposium is free.
