    We’re headed to Arizona next week for a couple months of horse camping and I found an Old Time Fiddle Contest scheduled nearby for February 13th.   I think I’m gonna enter it.

    I did my only other contest almost 40 years ago, back when I only knew “Boil Em Cabbage” and “Faded Love.”  I got second place.  There were only two of us in the contest.  The winner was a 9-year-old boy.  He smoked “Jerusalem Ridge” that day!

    Time limit for my Division is 4 minutes.  Yikes!   And it’s “old time” so no “fancy” stuff.   I’ve stripped down some versions of “Lonesome Fiddle Blues,” “Lonesome Midnight Waltz” and “Beaumont Rag” and I’m at about 4 minutes 30 seconds…..
