In my boredom of doing random searches including fiddle for the purpose of reading articles. Pretty current.

Enjoying the simple things in music.: "Dailey and his uncle and cousin reminisced about growing up in a musical family in their “old home place” near Worden. They said it was nothing for the whole family to spend an hour just tuning their instruments before playing well into the night."

Looks like this man took up fiddle only ten years ago, at age 60, and lately won a competition for those over 70.  That means he outfiddled people who have been playing since they were young.  But it also says he played guitar when he was young.
