Weiser fiddle festival produces many winners

There were eight divisions and forty five winners not counting Darin Meeks who accompanied the most performances – that was 188 – at the National Oldtime Fiddlers Contest and Festival last week in Weiser, Idaho.

Tobi Magruder, 37, of Great Falls, Montana, won the adult division. Rachel Mansfield, 7, or Boise, won the small fry division. Gayle Clarity, 72, or Woodburn, Oregon, won the senior-senior division. And Tristan Clarridge, no age given but he’s a young adult, came all the way from Roslindale, Maine to win the grand champion division. His sister Tashina, 21, took second place in the grand champion division. To go to their My Space page and listen to a video of them performing, double click the headline.
