Calhoun's young fiddle player Jake Krack just performed with some music greats at the Merlefest in Wakesboro, North Carolina, which drew 75,000 people to the four-day event.

Jake went on stage for the Saturday opening, with the likes of Doc Watson and David Holt. The Saturday event is the highlight of Merlefest, which is held in honor of Doc Watson's brother, Merle.

Jake was the guest of "The Old Time Herald Magazine," which is a national publication for old-time music.

The accomplished fiddler also played at the 42nd Chicago Folk Festival, playing two concerts and putting on two workshops showcasing West Virginia fiddle styles.

Organizers of the Chicago fest said "Jake stole the show. We have not had a fiddler like Jake Krack in years."

Jake just released his sixth CD "Hope I'll Join The Band."
