Second Annual Festival of Texas Fiddling
The Second Annual Festival of Texas Fiddling is now officially scheduled at La Bahia Turn Verein, a dance hall built in 1902 in Burton, Texas. Washington County is a historic area which has long featureed a particularly driving kind of Texas-Polish music, a style of which is one of the central features of this festival. La Bahia has been the site of a functioning dance hall since 1884.
I am very happy we are heading into the second year. I came up with the original idea of the festival and serve as Artistic Director of it, and have been really pleased and honored to work with Texas Folklife and Texas Dance Hall Preservation, Inc. in making it a reality.
I will post more about the fiddlers involved soon.
