It stands for the Tennessee Valley Old-Time Fiddlers Convention – the grandaddy of mid-south fiddle contests, as they have advertised it for forty-something years. I went to the second ever TVOTFC years ago, with my grandmother and mother one cool October night as a youth, although I had no idea I would be going one day to pick and jam with fellow musicians.
So the big event starts this coming Friday night and goes on through Saturday. Visit http://www.athens.edu/fiddlers/ for all the details. This year, Bobby Osborne and Buddy Spicher will be performing.
Come on out and join the fun if you’re in the neighborhood!
