Fiddling around

Locals do well in fiddle championships.

OROVILLE — Four local fiddlers and one picker won championships during last weekend’s California State Old Time Open Fiddle and Picking Championship Contest in Oroville:

* Ron Aglin is The California State Senior-Senior Fiddle Champion (70 and older).

* Amanda Culbreath is the California State Junior-Junior Fiddle Champion (12 and under).

* Francis McDonough California State Junior Picking Champion (17 and under).

* Christopher and Amy Culbreath are the California State Champion Junior Twin Fiddlers. This is the second consecutive year they have won.

They are eligible to compete for the National Championships in Weiser, Idaho. Leon Ranney, 84, was honored as the “Oldest Fiddler” competing in the contest.

  1. We spent last weekend at a bluegrass jam in the Chicago area. Maggie fiddled and Rachel got her fingers back in shape on the guitar.

    Congrats to the Culbreath kids!
