Members of the James G. “Bobo” Driver family, long-time supporters of the Jamboree, funded the new Fiddlers Jamboree website which features beautiful photos with easy to navigate information and a LIVE Twitter feed on the home page.

Mr. Driver founded the National Championship for Country Musician Beginners portion of the Fiddlers Jamboree during the 1980’s to showcase the talents of children up to the age of 12 in seven categories of music and dance competition.

Although tens of thousands attend the festival each year, the new website is designed to broaden its appeal to musicians, artisans, and tourists alike throughout the country and the world.
