FiddleTales will take place on Tuesday, April 5th from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in Strassweg Auditorium. Guests of all ages are welcome to attend this free event and no registration is required.

Using Appalachian humor and charm, Cunningham will weave classic fiddle tunes and stories into an engaging program including favorites such as “The Tennessee Waltz” and “How Hillbilly Jim Won the Great Fiddler’s Prize,” as well as Cunningham’s own stories with his talking fiddle.
