For the last 2 years, I have been in Ajo in early February, but never went to the Old Time Fiddlers Contest. This year I took the plunge. It was a lot of fun, with fiddlers jamming in the country club parking lot where we stayed.
The contest itself was exciting. Each contestant played 3 songs, including 1 waltz. Gayle, a former WIN, won the Senior division.
Jack, 83 years young, was terrific, and easily won the Senior/Senior division.
And the kids were amazing. Katherine, 12 years old, won the Junion/Junior division.
Friday and Saturday nights there were dances. The contestants all got together and played for us. Because of the contest requirements, they played a lot of waltzes, which I love.
