Rod Olstad's Fiddling Journey

The event that first sparked Rod’s interest in fiddling was the Barrhead Opry, established in 1983. In 1994, the year in which he embarked on the Northern Alberta Fiddle Project, there were fifteen opries within a hundred-kilometre radius of Barrhead, with others located in St. Paul, Bonnyville, and Grande Prairie.
