Arizona State Fiddle Championships

Posted by just Bill on Tuesday, September 30, 2008

I had the pleasure of M.C.'ing the Arizona State Fiddle Championships in Payson, AZ this past weekend.  It was a great weekend of old time fiddle music, with a beautiful contest site and the weather was perfect! 

Here are the results:

Arizona State Champion:  Andrew Donald  (two years in a row!)

2nd Place:  Michael Rolland

3rd Place:  David Kaemmer

For a complete list of all Divisions, check out:

(Yes, I realize the link says 2007 winners, but it IS the current, 2008 winners list.)

I'd be interested in know what tunes the three winners played - or at least those of the 1st place winner.

Sorry, Paul, there were so many contestants over a two day period, I don't recall. It was a FULL two days of old time fiddle. :^)

I do recall that a very popular number this year throughout the contest was, "Say Old Man (Can You Play The Fiddle)"

Was our own AZfiddler_1996 (Alice) there? I believe she studied with David Kaemmer, or at least jammed with him.

No, she didn't make it to Payson. I told her we hope to see here there next year!
