Interested in Texas or contest style fiddle playing? You've heard of it, but have you really heard it? Where do all those guitar chords come from, and how do they fit in that 3 chord song!? Here is your chance to watch, listen and even learn a new lick or two.

2010 Colorado State Fiddle Championship Adult Finalist, Chuck Onofrio with Arkansas State Accompanist Champion and 2 time Grand Lake National Fiddle Fest Accompanist Finalist, Jonathan Trawick will break down the style and help get you on your feet in the contest world.

Where: Good Folk House in Fayetteville, AR
When: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Cost: $20

Bring your fiddle, guitar and recording equipment and get ready to learn some Texas style fiddle and guitar. Parents are encouraged to accompany their kids.

For examples of the music, listen to Benny Thomasson, Legendary Texas Fiddler and Louis and Larry Franklin That's a Plenty - Louis and Larry. Of course, Mark O'Connor Championship Years 1975-84 is tough to beat!  Check out Johnny Gimble's Texas Fiddle Collection.
