Bethel Youth Fiddle Camp - 1988

Collection of twenty videos from the Bethel Youth Fiddle Camp 1988.  The camp has been going strong for almost 30 years.  Its focus is regional style and repertoire of Missouri and the Midwest.  The camp takes place every June in Bethel, Shleby County, in North Central Missouri.  These videos feature mostly teaching sessions by old-time Missouri fiddlers Vesta Johnson, Taylor McBaine, Bob Walsh, Kelly Jones and Dean Johnston and represent regional Missouri fiddle styles from the Ozarks, Little Dixie and North Missouri. All videos were recorded by folklorist Amy Skillman.
