2015 Hoppin’ John Fiddlers’ Convention:
September 17th – 19th
It’s been a hot one so far here in the Piedmont! As some of us travel near and far to experience the music that warms our spirits this time of year, we hope you will plan to end your summer season with the 9th Annual Hoppin’ John Old-Time & Bluegrass Fiddlers’ Convention. To enhance all the reasons we love Hoppin’ John already, we’ve added more instructional workshops and musician showcases this year (with more still yet to come), 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!
****All proceeds from Hoppin’ John go to benefit the Shakori Hills Community Arts Center, a NC not-for-profit corporation.****
