 Sisters Julie Simone and Vicki Vlasic returned to their Appalachian roots to film Fiddlin' at the World's Oldest and Largest Fiddler's Convention in Galax, Virginia. Julie and Vicki were given permission to film for the first time in the convention's 80 year history after Moose Lodge members discovered the sisters were locals and that they knew their grandpa.
