The 24th annual Berlin Fiddlers Convention returns this weekend with free live music by four local and regional bands, as well as competitions in multiple levels and categories.
Berlin Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Larnet St. Amant said Fiddlers would stick with its “tried and true” formula and will keep to much the same schedule of events as during previous years.
“It’s always been a really great event for us,” she said. “Friday night ends up being a nice, family vibe, and then Saturday we switch the stage [to] near the Atlantic Hotel end of town for the competition.”
Last year’s band competition winners, local father-son duo Blind Wind, will co-headline the live entertainment lineup downtown starting at 7 p.m. on Friday at the north end of Main Street.
Also performing Friday night is Grammy nominee Audie Blacklock, who will deliver a solo set and join Baltimore-based roots group Charm City Junction.
Blind Wind and Charm City Junction again will perform on Saturday morning, starting at 10 a.m. at the south end of Main Street, downtown.
