Storyline

Fiddlin' is a foot-stomping celebration of true Americana and artistic expression. This hopeful, inspiring Old-Time/ Bluegrass music documentary shines a light on what is best about America. Filmed in the Appalachian Mountains at the World's Oldest Fiddler's Convention, Fiddlin' shows the uplifting and healing power of music. With multi-generations jamming together and kids holding instruments instead of phones, it feels like taking a step back in time as we witness some off-the-charts pickin' and fiddlin'.

An amazing documentary about some amazing young musicians!
17 October 2019 | by DetroitAMASee all my reviews

When you see Ivy Phillips sawing away on the fiddle, or Presley Barker flatpicking on an acoustic guitar, you cannot help but be moved. It moved me to wish that I had children like this. They are passionate about what they do, yet in no way are cocky or arrogant. The documentary shows people (both young and old) who live for this roots music, and how it has affected their lives mentally, physically, and spiritually. You will be tapping your feet throughout, and by the time that the credits roll, you will be heading out to go buy a CD of this music or perhaps a guitar to start playing it. The editing and production are top-notch - you are watching a film that will move you in the same way a Ken Burns film moves a person. Even if you are not into old-time fiddle music (although you probably will be after watching), you will feel for the people within the film that have used this music to get them through hard times in life.
