Missouri folk arts fiddlers at Jefferson Landing State Historic Site on April 23

The musical event will spotlight fiddlers in the Missouri Folk Arts Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program.  Visitors will experience two Missouri fiddling traditions—Southwest Ozark and Little Dixie styles—played by master fiddlers Travis Inman and H.
