The Fiddlers Five

The Fiddlers Five

The ending of all festivals leave us with a sigh and a wish for just one more song or one more story. This past weekend, following the Ocracoke Music and Storytelling Festival, that is exactly what happened.

Philip Howard hosted the cast party for more than forty performers in the festival at his house. It was an evening of pure delight and merriment as musicians played their guitars, mandolins, fiddles and everything else that could fit on the back porch.

At one time there were five fiddle players dueling it out on the screened in porch. There was plenty of foot tapping and clapping during that event.

The music and stories went on until two in the morning. It was a great evening for all of us, and I was so happy to be included!

Until tomorrow.
