The Festival of Texas Fiddling is the first and only festival that brings the diverse fiddling traditions of the state together in the historic Twin Sisters Dance Hall. From Old Time to Country, Western Swing, Cajun, Creole, Tejano and Son Huasteco: the festival has a little something for everybody. Now, the festival is entering its fifth year, featuring a more diverse lineup than ever before.
Some of the featured fiddlers at the festival stopped by John Aielli’s Eklektikos show to give KUTX a sneak peek into the festival! Listen to the live performance and grab your tickets to the festival on December 6th and 7th below!
