Rod Olstad's Fiddling Journey

A third type of fiddling event represented in the NAFP is the jamboree. Jamborees are explicitly non-competitive, but, like contests, they provide a place where fiddle music can be played and enjoyed. Jamborees are family events. They are more relaxed, and they are not just about fiddling. The jamboree would not happen without amplification. Oliver Tardiff, for example, has a pickup on his violin.
