FAIRBANKS - This year marked the 30th anniversary of the Athabascan Fiddle Festival, the enormous musical event that brings together bands, dancers and fiddle-music lovers from across Alaska and the Lower 48. For four days, more than 80 bands keep the Chief David Salmon Tribal Hall alive with a musical art form that many Native elders are passing on to Alaska’s youth through outreach programs in Bush villages. The hall comes alive with everyone from infants to elders taking in the music, which is a reflection of Alaska life, culture and Native pride.
