South Carolina State Fiddling Championship
As autumn approaches and the leaves turn their brilliant colors, it signals the time for fiddle music in the mountains. On September 16th vintage fiddle music will fill the hills and hollers around Hagood Mill as it becomes the host for the annual South Carolina Old Time Fiddling Championship. Some of the best fiddlers in the southeast will gather to compete for the title of South Carolina champion. This traditional contest goes back to the 1920s when Clemson University opened the doors of rustic Tillman Hall to the local musicians of the nearby South Carolina Mountains for their music competition.
There will be cash prizes for competition in senior and junior fiddle categories as well as olde time string band, olde time banjo, guitar, and “wild cat” open categories.
Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and see it all for yourself at Hagood Mill this Saturday.
Date: September 16, 2017 12:00 PM-6:00 PM
Location: Hagood Mill | 138 Hagood Mill Rd., Pickens, SC 29671
