LONG-09. Fiddlin’

USA, Feature Documentary, 2018, 96 min

Winner at 8 film festivals

The rollicking, foot-stomping heart of competitive bluegrass is the Old Fiddler’s Convention run by the Moose Lodge in Galax, VA. Sister filmmakers Julie Simone and Vicki Vlasic, returning to their Appalachian roots, were given permission to film the festival for the first time in its 80-year history because Lodge members remember the sisters’ grandpa. From multi-generations jamming in the parking lots, to the ultra-competitive instrumental contests, we are eye witnesses to the folk roots of some of the greatest and most authentic bluegrass in America.​ And when the top 10 finalists are announced in the ultra-competitive guitar competition, we’re in for an exciting and unexpected musical climax. Fiddlin’ is a joyous celebration of Americana.

Directed by Julie Simone
