As autumn approaches and the leaves turn their brilliant colors, it signals the time for fiddle music in the mountains. On September 21 – 23 vintage fiddle music will fill the hills and hollers around Hagood Mill as we once again host the annual the Old Time Fiddling Convention. Some of the best fiddlers in the Southeast will gather to compete for the title of South Carolina’s State Champion Fiddler. This traditional contest goes back to the 1920s when Clemson University opened the doors of stately Tillman Hall to the local musicians of the nearby South Carolina Mountains for their music competition.
This year, for the first time, there will be a week-end event at the Mill during the Fiddling Convention. Come out on Friday and jam under the trees, play some Appalachian games (adults and kids), learn how and take a turn at square and contra dancing. And, listen to a concert by Vaden “Papa Vy” Landers.
The competition will take place all day Saturday along with a celebration of “Mountain Man” Robert Perry’s life and a nighttime concert. There will be cash prizes for competition in the senior and junior “old time fiddle” categories, and senior and junior “wild cat open” categories as well as senior and junior old-time string band, senior and junior old-time banjo, and senior and junior guitar categories. Fiddling styles other than “traditional old time” are welcome and encouraged to compete for cash prizes during the senior and junior Wildcat (open) competition. While the other categories emphasize “Old Time” music (see link), this category is open to Bluegrass, Swing, Blues, Modern, and Gypsy instrumentation as well.
Contestants can register in person at Hagood Mill or by calling 864-898-2936. Contestants may also register to compete at Hagood Mill on the day of the event or the day before. Junior competitors must register by 9:00 am on the day of the event. Senior competitors must be registered by 11:30 am in order to compete in this year’s competition. There will be a $10.00 registration fee for those competing in the Senior and Junior “Old Time Fiddle” competition. There will be a $15.00 registration fee for those wishing to compete in the Junior and Senior Old-Time string band competition. All other categories will require a $5.00 registration fee. More information about the rules, regulations for this competition can be found by visiting WWW.HagoodMillFoundation.org, on our Facebook page, by emailing email@example.com, or by calling Hagood Mill at (864)898-2936.
There will be some beautiful primitive campsites for tent camping, campers, and RVs, with portapotties and a central “water station” (to fill water jugs) available. No hookups however. These campsites may be reserved for Friday night and Saturday night for a minimal charge. See our website or call (above) to make reservations.
So come on out and sit a spell. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and set yourself to enjoy lively music and great food on the grounds of the historic old grist mill, which is the central destination for traditional music in the South Carolina Upcountry. The gristmill will be operating and mountain crafts demonstrations will be from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm on Saturday.
The Hagood Creek Petroglyph Site will be open to the public during this event as well. There will be a $5.00 general admission fee to the site per person per day. There will be no charge for children 10 and under and no charge for parking.
We can’t wait to see you here!

Three Star Revival
Three Star Revival was founded by frontman Ben Gaines and lead guitarist Cameron Moore in 2015. Gaines’ gifts as a vocalist and songwriter had already earned him a local following in Knoxville, but things really took off when he met his collaborative partner in Moore. Moore is a veritable guitar prodigy, and a Memphis native who was raised on classic Stax records, and the blues and jazz scene still vibrant in his hometown. After jamming for a few sessions on some more folky and country tunes, Gaines and Moore began to rapidly expand their musical horizons, going electric and incorporating sounds from across the Americana landscape and beyond with forays into funk, soul, r&b, and jazz. Initially playing with a rotating cast of Knoxville musicians, Gaines and Moore solidified their touring lineup with keys player Gregory Walton, bassist Tyler Reddick, and drummer Bo Kitzman. The quintet sprang forth from East Tennessee with an exhilarating live show that always keeps the listener engaged with meaningful lyrics, strong songwriting, and ridiculous improvisational jams from the talented 5 piece group. Three Star Revival is rapidly growing around Tennessee and the Southeast, with a heavy touring schedule and new music on the horizon, this group has only begun to plant its roots in the musical landscape.
