Fiddlin’ is an Old Time and Bluegrass music documentary that takes place at the World’s Oldest Fiddler’s Convention in the Appalachian Mountains. Wayne Henderson, a world -renowned luthier known as the “guitar god,” is both a master craftsman and master storyteller. His friendship with 11- year- old guitar prodigy Presley Barker shows how closely knit a community of musicians can be. The enduring relationship between mentor and prodigy is a testament to music’s power. With multi-generations jamming together, we are witness to some off-the-charts pickin’ and fiddlin’. And when the top 10 ten finalists are announced in the ultra-competitive guitar competition, we’re in for an exciting and unexpected musical climax. Fiddlin’ is authentic, inspiring and humbling. With kids holding instruments instead of phones, it almost feels like we have taken a step back in time.
