, the "First Lady of Country Fiddle", encouraged us to give fiddling a try at the American Heritage Music Festival in Grove, OK in 2001.
Jana gained fame as the first female member of Buck Owens' "Buckaroos" band, and was a regular performer on the "Hee Haw" TV show. She has appeared with such country music
greats as Chet Atkins, Roy Clark, Ray Stevens, The Oakridge Boys, Mel Tillis, Tammy Wynette, Ricky Skaggs and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. We had a wonderful time at the
Festival, and have returned every year since! We have also enjoyed every one of Jana's Labor Day Weekend fiddle camps since then. Jana continues to be a generous friend,
mentor, and role model.
