2015 Hoppin’ John Fiddlers’ Convention:
September 17th – 19th
Warm weather is here at last. Here’s to looking forward to fun season of music! Remember to mark your calendars now for the 9th Annual Hoppin’ John Old-Time & Bluegrass Fiddlers’ Convention. To enhance all the reasons we love Hoppin’ John already, we’re adding more instructional workshops and musicians showcases this year, along with a special Saturday evening concert with Richie & Rosie. We’ll be updating the site frequently – advance tickets are on sale now!
For those of you who have never been to Hoppin’ John, we are located on 72 beautiful acres of meadows and woods. All camping is primitive with hot showers and some 110 electrical hookups available. Along with traditional contests and square dances, Hoppin’ John features educational workshops, musician showcases, kids & family activities (including the hoppin’ john cook-off), food, craft and music vendors. Campfires are allowed!
We are currently seeking photographs of the 2014 convention. If you have some you’d like to share for website and publicity use, please send us a photo or site link.
****All proceeds from Hoppin’ John go to benefit the Shakori Hills Community Arts Center, a NC not-for-profit corporation.****
