The John Hartford Fiddle Tune Project: The Tour

The musical legacy of John Hartford returns with The John Hartford Fiddle Tune Project: The Tour, a show consisting of the previously unheard compositions he left behind, performed by musicians from the Grammy-nominated album, The John Hartford Fiddle Tune Project Vol. 1.

Megan Lynch Chowning is a seven-time national fiddle champion and respected Nashville musician and educator. She spent four years touring with legendary country music artists Pam Tillis and Lorrie Morgan, judged the National Fiddle Championships three times, and is the co-director of the IBMA-award-winning Nashville Acoustic Camps.

IBMA Mandolin Player of the Year nominee Tristan Scroggins joined Megan to record “John Rice,” “Just Enough Room to Turn Around,” and “Running Board Waltz” for the Fiddle Tune Project. Scroggins is well-known for his work with his father, Jeff Scroggins, and since moving to Nashville has played at many top venues including the Ryman Auditorium with acts such as Molly Tuttle, Missy Raines, and Dailey & Vincent.

Joining them onstage is the legendary Adam Hurt. Deemed a “banjo virtuoso” by the Washington Post, Adam Hurt has fused several traditional old-time idioms to create his own elegantly innovative clawhammer banjo style. A respected performer and teacher of traditional music, Adam has played at the Kennedy Center and since moving to the South in 2002, has placed in or won most of the major old-time banjo competitions, including three first-place finishes at Clifftop.
