Happy 80th Birthday to fiddler John White!
At 80, soft-spoken John isn’t resting on his laurels: he keeps learning tunes and challenging the rest of us to keep up with him. He plays dances, organizes the long-running Hallsville Dance on the second Saturday of each month, teaches several fiddle students a week, and still finds time for his favorite students, his grandchildren. He is also a dance fiddlin’ machine: he played nine dances and performances in the month of October!
If you see John around town or at the Hallsville dance, be sure and wish him a happy birthday.

And here’s John today, teaching at the 2016 Bethel fiddle camp!
