Old Fiddlers Picnic at Lancaster County Central Park

fiddleThe 27th Old Fiddlers Picnic was held August 4th at Lancaster County Central Park, sponsored by the Lancaster County Fiddler's Association.  Central Park, named for its central location,  is located at Chesapeake and Strawberry Streets in Lancaster.

Central Park

The Fiddlers Picnic had a schedule of performers, including Jimmy LaRue and his Red Rose Ramblers, from Lancaster.  Perhaps the most fun, however, is that groups come from around the area year after year with their instruments, and play their own music in "pickup" groups.  I brought my guitar a few years ago and sat in with a group of musicians I had never met before.  As long as I could keep up with their selections, they were happy to have me sit in!

Bluegrass music is the theme of the Old Fiddlers Picnic.  Bluegrass was coined by legendary fiddler Bill Monroe, who named his group the Blue Grass Boys, after the bluegrass of Kentucky.  Bluegrass music has elements of Scottish, Irish, English and Appalachian traditions.  Instruments featured are banjo, fiddle, guitar and bass, as well as tight vocal harmonies.
