Every spring for more than 75 years musicians from all over the country have gathered in the foothills of North Carolina at Fiddler's Grove. They come to play traditional old-time music and to compete for the annual Fiddling championship. In 1994, the three-day event was documented for public television. The one-hour program features more than 40 toe-tapping traditional songs. Meet the legendary Van Hoy family, hosts of the annual festival.
