During the summer of 2009 America's premier youth fiddling showband, The Saline Fiddlers, toured Germany. What can we say?!! Germany? YOU BET! It was, to say the least, an incredible journey. The performance schedule included Tübingen, Wangen, Lindau, Lindenberg and Rudolstadt. Saline, Michigan is a sister city with Lindenberg (in Bavaria) and has a close relationship with the people who hosted the Saline Fiddlers while they visited Germany. The German hospitality alone made the trip worth it. The Saline Fiddlers had huge crowds and many encores! Photos credit Joe O'Brien.
