Greenblatt & Seay proudly announce the Nineteenth ANNUAL SCHOOLHOUSE FIDDLING BEE. This historical, hysterical event will take place on Sunday, October 11 at 2:30pm downstairs in the Old Avoca Nebraska Schoolhouse. In the Open Division, fiddlers will play a hoedown, a waltz, and tune of choice. There will also be other divisions of competition available for the adventurous fiddlers, including a Singing Fiddler's Contest, a Twin Fiddler's Contest, a Fee-Fi-Faux Fiddler's Contest (fiddle tunes played on any instrument other than a fiddle), and a Hocus-Pocus Contest (cross-tuning, sound effects, dancing, etc.), which will give fiddlers an opportunity to play tunes that are usually not allowed in any other contest.
Contestants can pre-register online http://www.greenblattandseay.com/schoolhouse_fiddling_bee_preregistration.shtml.
Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for students, and $1 for children. Fiddlers and their back-ups are admitted for free. The contest will be followed by a light snack and an acoustic jam session.
