The fiddle’s enticing lilt, chop, and shuffle play a prominent role in a wide variety of Texas musical styles, from Western Swing to Tejano, Polish, Creole, and others. The Festival of Texas Fiddling showcases this diversity with a lineup of fiddle performances and workshops November 7 at the La Bahia Turn Verein Dance Hall in Burton. Presented by Texas Folklife and Texas Dancehall Preservation, Inc., the festival starts at 11 a.m. and culminates with an 8 p.m. dance featuring Hot Club of Cowtown, masters of hot jazz and Western Swing.
