The big yellow tent is up, the park is full of campers and the blue grass music is in the air.  It is time for the Fiddler’s Convention in Galax.  It’s the one thing Galax is famous for!  I am not a huge blue grass/old time fan but over the years I have earned an appreciation for the traditional music of these mountains.  Tonight kicks things off with the youth competition.  It’s fun to watch little ones with instruments as big as they are pick out Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  There are also some amazingly talented young people that enter.  We like to take the kids down on youth night because the crowd is low and they enjoy watching people their own age perform.  Check out this link for the week long schedule and ya’ll come on over to Galax!

    We are planning to be down there tonight but probably won’t make it until about 8pm – I hope we don’t miss her. We’ll be watching for her.
