Upper Midwest Tunes Placing Again At State Fiddle Contest

MaryPat Kleven ( president of the MN State Fiddle Association ) finished in second place at the 2015 state fiddle contest in the heritage division.  The heritage division is devoted to equal parts telling stories about a tune and playing a tune.

Mary Pat chose to play a fiddle tune from Leonard Finseth that was featured on the last CD.  She told a great story about Leonard and how she relates to his tunes.  It is wonderful to see Upper Midwest tunes get back into circulation at these events.
