  1. Taking my 84 year old father to the LIW home in Mansfield, MO for the celebration in Sept. My dad was a fiddler before his arthritis made him unable. He is also a big LIW fan. The highlight of the visit will be for him to hear someone playing Pa’s fiddle and the Fiddling Off Contest. I’ve been to Mansfield twice and can’t wait to return!!
