On Saturday, the community of Pearl will be hosting a free all-day Bluegrass music festival. Two Austin-area young fiddle performers will be highlighted onstage at 4 p.m.
Sue Knorr, who schedules musicians for the monthly bluegrass gathering, said Pearl Bluegrass is hoping to draw more music lovers to Pearl’s community center who will come and stay for the performances. She hopes that plenty will come to hear the Twin Fiddle Kids from Austin.
Brother and sister duo, 16-year old Chet Fagerstrom and his 13-year old sister Kaya, study classical violin in school but they also enjoy playing fiddle tunes together. The kids have performed at Pearl Bluegrass before.
