The 2018 Golden Fiddle Awards Showcase is on again from 9am on Wednesday 24th January at the awesome air-conditioned Capitol Theatre in Tamworth during the 2018 Tamworth Country Music Festival.
Presented By Epoch Strings this show is described by many as the highlight of the festival
With two very special families – The String Family (constantly touring Australia) & String Loaded (Bluegrass/ Celtic/ Scottish Family Band with an arm-load of recent Awards!)
The whole Fiddle Family – Fiddle, Viola, Cello & Double Bass will presented through the morning.
Cousins A & F Mandolins together with a double size Mandola presented by Paddy Montgomery (ex-Mustered Courage), Pete Fidler (prince of the dobrolic plectural society) and the Tall MD himself, Andrew Clermont.
Second half will be shook by Devil on the Rooftop formed by Jess Randall (The Crooked Fiddle Band) drawing on Medieval roots, hard-driving Bluegrass and Eastern European ’Gypsy violin’ traditions. They combine heart-stopping suspense, jaw-dropping fluidity, mind-bending rhythms, tear-jerking passion and a slightly odd sense of humour.
Plus our favourite West Australian, Jude Iddison with new dancing fiddle tunes.
