As autumn approaches and the leaves turn their brilliant colors, it signals the time for fiddle music in the mountains. On September 20thvintage fiddle music will fill the hills and hollers around Hagood Mill as it becomes the host for the annual South Carolina Fiddling Championship. Some of the best fiddlers in the southeast will gather to compete for the title of South Carolina champion. This traditional contest goes back to the 1920s when Clemson University opened the doors of rustic Tillman Hall to the local musicians of the nearby South Carolina mountains for their music competition.
There will be cash prizes for competition in senior and junior fiddle categories as well as olde time banjo, guitar, and junior open.
Bring a lawn chair and set yourself to enjoy lively music and good food on the grounds of the historic old grist mill that is the central destination for traditional music in the South Carolina upcountry.
Development of an on-line registration form has been delayed. Contestants can register by calling 864.898.2936 or at the Hagood Mill on the day of the event. For more information about the rules and regulations for this event please go towww.visitpickenscounty.com/calendar.
