2014 Minnesota State Championship

Wednesday, August 06, 2014 @11:12:43 AM

I've just returned from my annual trip to Minnesota to participate in the State Old Time Fiddle Championships held in Mt. Iron, MN. I was able to defend my title from 2013 and repeat as the 2014, Senior Division Champion . My strength has always been Waltzes and weakness, hoedowns. This year I played a Texas style breakdown using third position and pulled it off very well. My tune selections for the championship round were: Poor Girl Waltz (Canadian) Old Sport (Texas breakdown) and Tune of Choice, Clarinet Polka. I've done two contests so far this summer and finished first in both. I am doing four more and am hoping for a clean sweep. That would be a first for me. I usually pick my contest tunes in the Fall of the year and practice them all winter and Spring so that I can play them without thinking about them while in contests. It is always enjoyable to see old friends, jam tunes and hear new ones at fiddle contests!
