Last weekend, the Fiddlers of Idaho State Championship was held in Hailey. Those with the top scores have now advanced to the national championships in Weiser this summer.
There was competition at all levels, from the “senior senior” division of 70 and above, to the “small fry” division of eight and younger.
Contestants were judged on three fiddle songs: a waltz, a hoe down and a tune of their choice. But who wasn’t there was as important as who was.
