For the past eight years Greenville has the unique honor of hosting the annual Bob Wills Fiddle Festival. People from around the world arrive in Greenville each year to celebrate the King of Western Swing – Bob Wills. This year the GMA will host the closing concert featuring Lee Roy Parnell, The Bob Wills Texas Playboys under the direction of Jason Roberts, and special guest Brennen Leigh on Saturday, November 5 at 7:30. But this amazing concert is only part of the fun that weekend.
On Friday, November 4, there’s the Big Ball in G-Town featuring The Bob Wills Texas Playboys playing classic Western Swing for a dinner and dance at the Civic Center. That same night the fiddle contest preliminaries begin, and the next day the contest runs all day leading up to the closing concert. There will be music all day here in Greenville, and to get all the details please visit the Bob Wills Fiddle Festival website for a complete lineup and schedule.
