The Year of Small Towns

In our part-time state of Alabama, 2010 was declared The Year of Small Towns & Downtowns. Before the year gets away from us, we hope to visit at least one of the upcoming events being celebrated in these special places events like A Gathering & Fish Fry Celebrating Fiddler Charlie Stripling on Nov. 13 in Belk. That sounds cool. Folks say Stripling was Alabama’s greatest old-time fiddler, with recordings that date back to the 1920s and ’30s. Read more about him here.
