Long Lake will host the 19th Annual Fiddle Jam on Sunday, April 25 at the Long Lake Town Hall starting at 1pm. This year it will morph into a weekend long event complete with free Fiddle workshops on Saturday with George Harriger Sr and George Harriger Jr.
George and George will coach students to play, all levels of fiddlers are welcome to participate. Workshops start at 1pm at the town hall and run until 4pm. That evening there will be an informal jam at the Town Hall and anyone interested in auditioning for Saturday’s show is to welcome to try out. Six people will be selected to compete in Saturday’s jam for cash prizes of $125, $100 & $75 for Audience Choice.
In the past Long Lake has prided itself on it being a relaxed casual fiddle jam atmosphere, but this year changes were made to amp up the performances on Sunday and award higher cash prizes.
Come on out, stay the weekend, make Long Lake the Fiddle Destination. The Spring Blossom Fiddle Jamboree is made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts Decentralization Regrant Program. In Hamliton County, the Decentralization Program is administered by the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts located in Blue Mt. Lake.
