Fiddler's Picnic at the Johnson County Fairgrounds 9/19/10

40th Annual Fiddler’s Picnic | Sept 19, noon – 6 p.m. | Johnson County Fairgrounds

These Eastern Iowa pickers might not grace the cover of Rolling Stone any time soon (then again, they might), but that’s fine with us–established traditions like this one have very little to prove. For the 40th year, Eastern Iowa’s finest old-time, bluegrass, Celtic, country and folk musicians are getting together to take part in a continuous stage show that all ages are sure to enjoy.

Antique instruments will be on display and free banjo, guitar, mandolin, and fiddle workshops will be provided from 2 -3 p.m. (Beginners and children are encouraged.) Seasoned players are also encouraged to bring instruments along and look for jams in the parking lot, or sign in for a turn on the mainstage.
