We were in Weiser Idaho last week so my daughter could compete in the National Fiddle competition. We have never been to such an event and it was a learning experience for us all. She had to play three separate pieces back to back and did a good job. It was very fun seeing her up on a big screen. Her bracket had 76 people in it and only 12 made it to the 2nd level, I am sad to say yes she was cut but we had fun.
When she came on stage she saw us and stood there posing for a photo I think waiting for a flash it was quite funny. She is excited to try again next year and now has a better understanding of what it takes to compete at this level. This year should be good.
