Abstract Fiddler's Grove, an old-time-music and family-oriented campground, which hosts traditional music and dance events throughout the year is owned and operated by Harper and Wanona Van Hoy in Union Grove, N.C. The Ole Time Fiddler's & Bluegrass Festival, a fiddling competition, has been held annually in the spring since Fiddler's Grove's founding in 1970, and the Square-Up, a clogging competition was held in the fall until 1982. The fiddling festival, however, traces its history in Union Grove to 1924 when Harper Van Hoy's father, H. P. Van Hoy, founded the Old Time Fiddlers Convention as a school fundraiser. The collection provides an overview of the history and operation of Fiddler's Grove, and its main entertainment events, the Ole Time Fiddler's & Bluegrass Festival and the Square-Up. The work of Harper Van Hoy and Wanona Van Hoy in building the reputation of Fiddler's Grove as a gathering place for old-time music and family entertainment is documented throughout the collection. Also documented is the split between Harper Van Hoy and his brother, J. Pierce Van Hoy, which resulted in two competing Van Hoy-operated spring fiddling events in Union Grove, 1970-1979. General correspondence, newspaper clippings, promotional material, and other items go back to the founding of the Old Time Fiddlers Convention. Festival materials include participation registration information, lists of winners, judges' notes, and correspondence, and other items. Also included are open-reel tapes, an eight-track tape, compact discs, and a videotape, all of which relate to the Ole Time Fiddler's & Bluegrass Festival.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Historical Information

Fiddler's Grove, an old-time-music and family-oriented campground, was developed on land purchased in Union Grove, N.C., by dairy farmer and fiddler Harper Van Hoy and his wife, Wanona, in 1970. From the beginning, Fiddler's Grove was envisioned as the site for an annual fiddling competition. Central entertainment events at Fiddler's Grove have been the Ole Time Fiddler's & Bluegrass Festival, a spring fiddling competition held annually since 1970, and the Square-Up, a fall clogging dance competition held until 1982.

The history of Fiddler's Grove, and particularly the Ole Time Fiddler's & Bluegrass Festival, is rooted in Van Hoy family history and the history of fiddling competitions in Union Grove, N.C. In 1924, Harper Van Hoy's father, H. P. Van Hoy, a school teacher and musician, started the Old Time Fiddlers Convention as a fundraiser for the Union Grove school. Held annually on the school grounds every Easter weekend, the fiddling convention was a popular community event that brought many area old-time fiddlers into the small unincorporated town of Union Grove to compete. With the folk music revival in the 1950s and 1960s, however, this small-town community event became increasingly popular with young people who would travel great distances to attend. The unconventional lifestyles of many of these young people, particularly their long hair and consumption of illegal drugs and alcohol, disturbed many residents of the conservative farming community. After the 1968 convention, a group of Union Grove residents, led by a Methodist minister, protested the immoral and illegal conduct attributed to the young people attending the event from outside the community. The Iredell County School Board decided that the fiddling convention would have to find a new home after the 1969 event. Harper and Wanona Van Hoy purchased land near the Union Grove school with the intention of developing Fiddler's Grove into a family campground that would be the new home of the fiddling convention. However, Harper Van Hoy and his older brother, J. Pierce Van Hoy, disagreed over the direction the convention should take. The disagreement resulted in two rival fiddling events being held each spring in Union Grove from 1970 to 1979.

Since it was no longer a fundraiser for the school, Pierce Van Hoy felt the convention should be promoted and developed commercially into a profitable business while promoting and preserving old-time music. He held his event on his farm and called it the World's Championship Old-Time Fiddlers Convention. Financially committed to Fiddler's Grove, Harper Van Hoy felt it was important to focus on the music and the community by creating a family atmosphere and enforcing a ban on alcohol and illegal drugs. He called his event the Ole Time Fiddler's & Bluegrass Festival and received early support from Doc Watson, Lee and Jean Shilling, Alan Jabbour, and Allein Stanley, among others. While the World's Championship Old-Time Fiddlers Convention attracted large crowds and was immediately financially successful, Harper Van Hoy's Ole Time Fiddler's & Bluegrass Festival deliberately stayed small, despite early financial losses, by implementing an invitation-only attendance policy in 1973. Both fiddling events were held simultaneously in Union Grove over Easter weekends. After newspaper accounts erroneously reported drug-related incidents and other problems occurring at the Ole Time Fiddler's & Bluegrass Festival instead of the World's Championship Old-Time Fiddlers Convention, Harper Van Hoy moved his festival to Memorial Day weekend in 1974 distance it from his brother's festival. Community residents continued to protest the influx of illegal drugs, alcohol, and promiscuity attendant with the huge crowds at Pierce Van Hoy's World's Championship Old-Time Fiddlers Convention. The enactment of a bill to regulate rock festivals and other mass gatherings eventually resulted in the closing of the World's Championship Old-Time Fiddlers Convention by court order in 1980.

Fiddler's Grove continued to host the Ole Time Fiddler's & Bluegrass Festival on Memorial Day weekend along with a number of other events. The Festival's commitment to the preservation and perpetuation of old-time music is particularly reflected in its special competition categories of Old-Time Fiddler (fiddlers 55 years and older who play strictly by ear with no formal violin training) and Heritage Tune (in which the fiddler must not only perform but tell the origin and story of an old tune). The Square-Up, an annual dance competition, held over Labor Day weekend was an institution at Fiddler's Grove until 1982. This dance competition featured traditional mountain, precision, and smooth clogging teams as well as individual buck and flatfoot dancers. Fiddler's Grove and the Ole Time Fiddler's & Bluegrass Festival were nominated in the Local Legacy category by Senator Jesse Helms as part of the Library of Congress Bicentennial in 2000.

When Harper Van Hoy announced at the 1972 Ole Time Fiddler's & Bluegrass Festival that attendance at future festivals would be limited to 5,000 and controlled by an invitation-only policy, with an agreement on the part of recipients that they would honor the family atmosphere by taking a pledge not to consume illegal drugs or alcohol during the festival, the mailing list maintained by Fiddler's Grove became particularly important and formed the basis for the growing "Fiddler's Grove Family." The development of the mailing list eliminated the need for outside publicity and allowed for the smooth transition of the change of date for the Festival from Easter weekend to Memorial Day weekend in 1974. A selection of mailing lists and additions, some on separate slips of paper, 1972-1991, is included.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 1.5. Miscellaneous Fiddler's Grove and Related Material.

About 300 items.

Miscellaneous material relating directly or tangentially to Fiddler's Grove. Included are material about ASCAP and booking agencies; brochures and promotional items from other festivals and musicians; information abut craft vendors, the National Folk Festival Association, and the North Carolina Division of Health; and other material about Fiddler's Grove and the Ole Time Fiddler's & Bluegrass Festival, including performer contracts, student papers, and speeches. Correspondence with the ASCAP relating to the licensing of material performed at Fiddler's Grove documents Harper Van Hoy's struggle to get ASCAP to recognize that old-time and bluegrass music primarily draws from public domain material. Material relating to craft vendors and exhibitors was collected for craft shows at Fiddler's Grove. Material relating to Fiddler's Grove includes drawings, a biography of H. P. Van Hoy, and certificates of appreciation. National Folk Festival Association material includes information on the American Folklife Foundation Act and the Calendar of Folk Festivals and Related Events. The 1974 material relating to the North Carolina Division of Health resulted from a state bill that regulated open-air assemblies of more than 5,000 people continuously for 24 hours and influenced the changing of dates for the fiddling festival from Easter weekend to Memorial Day weekend to end confusion with Pierce Van Hoy's much larger Easter weekend fiddling convention. Miscellaneous Ole Time Fiddler's & Bluegrass Festival printed items include tickets, car passes, a 1984 Fiddler's Grove New Years card announcing the change of festival dates, Fiddler's Grove campground brochure, Fiddler's Grove 1995 newsletter, and a 1973 Fiddler's Grove bumper sticker. The small selection of performer contracts date from the early 1970s and includes contracts for Doc Watson, Jimmy Martin and the Sunny Mountain Boys, Hoyt Herbert and the Lincoln County Partners, and Nick Hancock and the Bluegrass Gentlemen. There are several papers by students, mostly from the early 1970s, about the history of the Van Hoy fiddling events. Particularly notable are two speeches and a short article by Hank Van Hoy, Harper Van Hoy's son, who attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as an undergraduate and as a law student during the 1970s.

Arrangement: chronological.

Harper Van Hoy's Ole Time Fiddler's & Bluegrass Festival is documented by year from 1970 to 1999, with the exception of 1997 for which there are no materials. Included are registration forms (where applicable divided into competition categories of heritage tunes, individuals, junior bluegrass bands, junior old-time bands, old-time fiddlers, senior bluegrass bands, senior old-time bands, and twin fiddlers), rules and guidelines, order of program, judges' notes, correspondence relating directly to registration or competition judging, and a list of winners. Changes made in the festival over the years, such as former judge Allein Stanley taking on the role of coordinator of judges in 1973, the certification of Old-Time Fiddler status in 1978, and the introduction of the Heritage Tune category in 1979, are documented. Of special interest is the 1968 material that pertains to H. P. Van Hoy's 44th annual Old Time Fiddlers Convention and particularly concerns the photographs taken at that convention. Note that original file folder titles have, for the most part, been retained.

Arrangement: chronological

Since 1970, the major Labor Day weekend event at Fiddler's Grove has been the annual Square-Up, a dance festival featuring competition in traditional mountain, precision clog and smooth dance teams, as well as individual clogging, buck and wing dancers. Square-Up was apparently a show-case performance venue the first year, but it became an invitation-only competition by 1971. Most years include registration of dance groups and individuals, Square-Up specific correspondence, press releases, rules, memos, and a list of winners. Some material on other dance events is included as these appear to have helped shape Square-Up.
