Carolina in the Fall audience at night

August 4, 2015

Carolina in the Fall™ presented by Wilkes Communications, Inc. is pleased to announce that it will be auctioning a one of a kind, handmade Bob Kogut fiddle during this year’s festival. Bob's fiddles are known for having a sweet, rich voice, without harsh, strident overtones. They are all handmade and can be customized to a fiddler’s preferences. Each violin is unique and is given its own name when it is completed. The name may reflect a characteristic of the violin or be symbolic of a particular milestone in the maker's own life.

The fiddle will be on display during the festival. This will be a silent auction with the winner being announced during the last evening of the festival. Bob will be on-hand to present the high bidder with his custom made violin.

Other items to be auctioned during the festival include a handmade Lyle Wheeler rocker, two Jens Kruger personally autographed Deering Banjos (one each evening) and a two person 2016 Carolina in the Fall Festival Package (including three nights at the Holiday Inn Express and two VIP tickets).
