FidPick Returns in 2021!
April, 2021: After a most trying year (and the first ever online FidPick concert!) The Kansas State Fiddling & Picking Championships return to South Park IN PERSON for our 40th Annual event.
This milestone occasion will be held, as usual, on the 4th weekend in August, but with some adjustments made for the safety of our competitors, performers and spectators. What those changes will be aren’t yet certain, as the situation is fluid — but as of now, the FidPick Board is moving ahead with our signature in-person outdoor event.
This spring announcement would normally include messages like “practice your fingers off” and “let’s blow last year out of the water!” As of now, the Board feels a more modest approach to the event is most appropriate with the signs of the times. There is still too much uncertainty to say exactly what #FidPick40 will bring. But what we DO know, is that we ARE going to burn the stage down with world class Old-time music, and recognize and reward great musicians just like we always do.
Stay optimistic, keep practicing, and everything will fall into place soon. Keep an eye on our website and social channels (follow us @KansasFidPick) for the latest news and Sunday concert announcements. Thank you for being a part of the extraordinary FidPick community, and we are eager to see your faces August 20-22.
