Review of the Fiddle Contest Kit:

"As the seasonal warmth from the sun increases, countless folk musicians, amateurs and otherwise, are warming up their skills on string instruments, anticipating the festivals and contests ahead. Thomson, a noted fiddler and judge of fiddle contests from Maine to California, has prepared a handbook-kit to assist in staging and rating such contests...Many of the ideas and checklist details will apply to general plans for festivals and contests, large and small. A practical, thoughtful how-to guide to an area of responsibility key to the organizational life of folk music activity."
