2014 Fiddler’s Frolics and TX Fiddler’s Hall of Fame at Hallettsville, TX
I wasn’t able to attend the 2014 Fiddler’s Frolics this past weekend in Hallettsville, TX but I was able to listen to the fiddler’s contest on Texas Thunder Internet Radio and it was great! I recommend anyone unable to attend next year to listen to the live broadcast for a great experience. Congratulations to Bubba Hopkins for winning and retaining the Texas State Fiddle Champion title. And congratulations to Johnny and Jason Crisp on their induction into the Texas Fiddlers Hall of Fame. They are the first Father and Son to be inducted at the same time. That’s an amazing accomplishment and a credit to their life long contribution and support of Texas Style Fiddling. The Franklin family has always enjoyed playing and supporting Texas Style Fiddling and the Fiddler’s Frolics. I’m proud of my nephew, Jason Andrew who placed 5th overall this year. Way to go Jason! And I have to say Wade Stockton and Wayne Massengale were awesome as the Emcee’s! The Fryer family and all the great folks who make this event possible deserve a lot of credit for making this the favorite event of the year for so many fiddlers and their families. Check out this cool Brown Jug I received in 1972.
