The fiddlers' convention at Union Grove is the oldest bluegrass music festival of the U.S., held in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Presents both contemporary and traditional performances of American mountain music and dance, including many selections on the banjo and dulcimer. This film documents the intense hippy-ness of this festival during the 1970s.
