12 year old fiddler on NPR

Here’s a nice feel good story as we head into the weekend…

All Things Considered, on National Public Radio, ran a piece earlier this week about Roland Clark, a 12 year old fiddle phenom from Vermont. Roland has been playing for only four years, but has found himself performing with both bluegrass and classical ensembles of note, and generating a good bit of attention for his skill and artistry.

The six minute piece includes an interview with this impressive young man, and you can hear it on the NPR site.
