Joe Lautzenheiser used his championship experience and love for “old swing tunes” to fiddle his way to victory at the annual Ohio State Fiddling Contest on Friday night.

More than 20 fiddlers took the stage at Stuart’s Opera House, split into four age groups and bound by the same contest rules. Each contestant is given four minutes to play one waltz and one hoedown to demonstrate their range and depth of skill on the fiddle.

Many players were accompanied by a guitarist (often another contestant) to help them keep rhythm and stay in tune.
