Fiddlin' is a foot-stomping celebration of true Americana and artistic expression. This hopeful, inspiring 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 truly feels like we have taken a step back in time.

Tapping your toes and opening your heart!
22 August 2019 | by brettbusySee all my reviews

You don't have to be a bluegrass fan to fall in love with this wonderful story - but you'll be a fan by the end!!

For a newcomer to the fiddling world, I was captivated by the talented performers and the personal stories told in this film. The movie is so much more than a music festival documentary: it's a heartfelt account of the people in the community and what their music brings to their lives.

As an added bonus to the amazing music, the cinematography shows the beautiful landscape of the Virginia setting.
