A "Fiddle Champ" is Crowned

October 7, 2013

ATHENS, Ala. – Joel Whittinghill was named “Fiddle Champion” at the 47th annual Tennessee Valley Old Time Fiddlers Convention at Athens State University on Saturday night.

Whittinghill of Bowling Green, Kentucky, won the title by winning the “fiddle off” which traditionally pits the top fiddlers from the junior and senior divisions. Wayne Jerrolds of Savannah, Tennessee finished runner-up. Whittinghill, who won the junior fiddle division, earned the convention’s top prize of $1,000.

The convention is sponsored by the Athens State University Foundation and the Greater Limestone County Chamber of Commerce. The convention has contributed more than $500,000 to Athens State to fund student scholarships and university projects.
