Documentary film Fiddlin’ is a celebration of true Americana and artistic expression in the face of adversity. This rollicking, inspiring film shines a light on what is best about America and shows the uplifting power of music.

Fiddlin’ pays tribute to Old Time and Bluegrass music at the 80th annual Old Fiddler’s Convention where musicians travel from around the world to compete and jam with friends, without a cell phone in sight.

Wayne Henderson, a world-renowned luthier known as the “guitar god”, is both a master craftsman and master storyteller. His friendship with 11-year old Presley Barker shows just how closely knit a community of musicians can be as Presley and Wayne vie for top prize in the ultra-competitive Adult Guitar Competition. Determined to keep the music and traditions alive, all exclaim they will pass it on to future generations and play till the day they die!

Sister filmmakers, Julie Simone and Vicki Vlasic, returned to their Appalachian roots to film at the Old Fiddler’s Convention in Galax, Virginia. They were given permission to film for the first time in its 80 year history after event organizers discovered they knew the sisters’ grandpa. Their local connection also earned them the trust of the talented musicians who opened their hearts and shared their stories.
