Sandoval, McDonald take second place at Weiser, Idaho fiddling championship
Sunday, Aug. 2, 2015 — For the past 23 years, Johny McDonald has been competing in the National Old Time Fiddling Championship, which takes place the third full week of June in Weiser, Idaho.
This year McDonald and Janesville’s Tallon Sandoval captured second place in the Twin Fiddling Division. They played two rounds competing against 17 other twin teams for the prize.
They made the top five after the first "cut" and advanced to the finals, placing second in the competition.
Sandoval and McDonald have been playing twin fiddles together for a number of years and in 2012 made a twin fiddling CD titled, “Collide.”
