September 20 - 21, 2013
Ozark Folk Center
Mountain View, Arkansas

This year we have added a new discipline to the weekend, Old-Time Ozark style. This event/contest will take place Friday afternoon/evening. We've added this to highlight traditional fiddle playing specific to our region. This contest is open to any regional old-time style of playing. The contemporary "contest" style competition everyone is used to will take place on Saturday. Both contests are open to residents of any state.

First Prize -- Open and Senior Divisions . . . $500.00
Second Prize -- Open and Senior Divisions . . . $300.00
Third Prize -- Open and Senior Divisions . . . $100.00

First Prize -- Junior Divisions . . . $200.00
Second Prize -- Junior Divisions . . . $100.00
Third Prize -- Junior Divisions . . . $50.00

These prizes are for both contests, Friday and Saturday.

J. Mulkey Kent Award . . . $300.00
The J. Mulkey Kent Award will go to the fiddler who best exhibits traditional Ozark fiddling. To enter and be considered for this award, one must fiddle in a style that is recognized by the judges as being consistent with traditional Ozark fiddling. In the event that none of the contestants being considered meet the qualification, it is not mandatory that this award be given.

Brandon use to play with some friends of mine (Two Mule Plow / Memphis). I heard he had stopped playing....

Glad to see him back and active in the music community again. He is one great fiddler / great guy. His brother is an outstanding guitar player too.

Wish I could be there.

Tony,

Brandon and Brad have been playing about once a month at the Ozark Folk Center, since April. No idea what else they might have going, but I know they stay pretty busy. Just good ol' country folks . . . and, outstanding musicians, as you mentioned.

Wish you could be there, too!

Hey, Christine! Yes, early registration is encouraged! Go to this link http://www.ozarkfolkcenter.com/events/?isofc=1&id=1642 , then look at the bottom of the page, and click on the link next to Document. I see, however, that it is a pub file, which requires Microsoft Publisher to open. That should have been converted to a pdf. The suggestion to change it has been made. Don't know how long that will take, though. Hopefully within the next day, or two. smiley
