Living legends demonstrate the roots of their music and bring to life a by-gone era through colorful stories. Present day fiddlers compete in the renowned “Fiddlers’ Frolics” in Hallettsville, Texas. Family ties run deep as winners describe how their ancestors’ talent flows through them today. “The Devil’s Box” recently held its World Premiere at SXSW Film Festival.
