Fiddling and dancing in Hammond

HAMMOND, N.Y. (WWNY) - They’ve been fiddling around the north country to support small communities. For more than 10 years, the Black River Valley Fiddlers have been coming to the Hammond Fire Hall to play different genres of old time music to dance to.

From country and western to polka music, this fiddle group travels around the north country and performs benefit shows like this for non profits every Sunday.

The organizers say this event raises around 300 dollars each year with the proceeds going towards the Hammond Museum.

“Well there are benefits for some of them and then we don’t change as much so they can make their fire departments and the historical societies and things can make a little profit to keep going,” said Caroline Camidge, President of the Black River Valley Fiddlers.

Next Sunday the group will be at the Carthage Elks Lodge.
