Fiddlers’ Pilgrimage: The Weiser Legacy
Fiddlers' Pilgrimage: The Weiser Legacy explores the reasons that oldtime fiddling is thriving in our time, and why Weiser, Idaho, is the western mecca for this traditional art form. Western Folklife Center producers attended the 60th National Oldtime Fiddlers Contest and Festival and joined players and their devoted fans for this defining cultural event which each June transforms this tiny community of farmers and ranchers.
