Polly Burre Memorial Old Time Fiddlers’ Contest

Saturday, June 28, 2014 • 5 p.m. Registration begins at 4 p.m.
Community Hall, Tebbetts, Missouri

For the first time in 15 years, the Tebbetts Community Picnic is bringing back an old-time Fiddler’s Contest.

It will be named for the late Kenneth “Polly” Burre (1916-1999), who was a well-known organizer, promoter, and emcee of fiddle contests all over Missouri. Polly was also a musician in his own right.

The event is part of the Tebbetts Community Picnic, which has been going since 1948. Tebbetts is located 13 miles east of Jefferson City on Highway 94. (map)
