This video shows the final 13 minutes of a 2 hr head to head competition
Annual competition in Pembroke which has about 25 fiddlers playing reels in turn without stopping and without playing a reel that has been played before. Towards the end, the fiddler must play only the "A" of a reel (which only takes 10 seconds). This video shows the final minutes of the contest Sept. 5, 2010, while there were only three participants: April Verch, Shane Cook and Danny Perreault. The contest lasted about 2 hours.
