Nevertleless, SHS choir representative, HighClimbin' Hooligans, brought enthusi- asm, spontaneity, and fine sing- Special to the Journal The Washington Old Time Fiddlers Association (WOTFA) and the Shelton High School (SHS) Choir sponsored the 30th annual Fiddle Fest with two performances at the high school Performing Arts Center on Sat- urday. Traditional fiddle, en- compassing everything from bluegrass and gospel music, to dance music, such as reels, jigs, polkas, waltzes and hoedowns to international music, were played. Jamie Fox of Olympia played songs on the Metis rid- dle with Celtic, French and Na- tive American influences; Rita Hubbard of Port Townsend played guitar and led the au- dience in the gospel tune "I'll i Fly Away;" JeffAnderson of Seabeck played guitar and sang railroad and hobo songs; and John Loder of Redmond played fiddle tunes on his banjo. The performers ranged in age from 5 to 89; yet their mu- tual love of traditional fiddle music ignored the eight-decade difference. At one end of the age scale, Vern Morgus, 89, played "Stardust" on his harmonica; and Vivian Williams, Seattle's nationally recognized fiddle expert, brought 60 years of experience to her songs of Scot- land and Appalachia. At the other end, Tenino High School senior Danielle Z'Berg played the fiddle and.provided a Celtic dance; and Mason County's own Nakhla Family Band and Crichton Family Band provided glimpses of Fiddle Fest's bright future through these talented young musicians. There were many more gifted musicians playing fiddle music. Most choir students had never before heard this type ing to their ren Crack Corn" Song."

Ticket sales money from Fiddle Fest was split in half between WOTFA and the SHS choir. WOTFA sponsors scholarships to fiddle camps with their funds. The choir uses its share for choir trips to festivals. This makes Fiddle Fest both entertaining and a good cause.
