Albert Hash was a beloved fiddle player and master fiddle maker from Whitetop who memory is celebrated at this annual festival of Old Time and Bluegrass music. Food and craft vendors make this a very pleasant affair that usually includes a display of fiddles Albert made. Don’t count on buying one. His fiddles are tightly held, especially by those who knew this wonderfully gifted and kind man personally. The Whitetop Mountain Band which Albert founded is always on hand keeping the music lively.
