Fiddling is deeply rooted in Missouri history having first been brought to the state by its early French settlers. Joining Missouri's state symbols as its state musical instrument, the fiddle is as iconic as the bluebird or a white hawthorn blossom. During Together for '21 Fest, stop by and enjoy a lively jam session of fiddling masters playing in Peace Park on August 6.

Fiddler John P. Williams, of Madison, Missouri, who apprenticed under the late Pete McMahan, will lead the session and showcase traditional fiddling tunes and techniques. Fiddlers Kenny Applebee, Dave Cavins, and Amber Gaddy of Columbia, Missouri, will provide backup.
