Hillary Klug, an awesome fiddler from Tennessee, posted an incredible video of herself on Facebook, tap dancing and playing the fiddle on a dock right beside the river. She says she’s a dancing fiddler who’s proud to preserve her heritage.
“I’m a dancing fiddler! I’m proud to preserve my Tennessee music heritage and share with audiences around the world!” Hillary wrote about herself on her Facebook page.
I hope y’all are doing alright out there and staying safe!
In the video, she gets down to the classic “Devil Went Down To Georgia” song and captions it that she’s paying tribute to the late Charlie Daniels. With her awesome boots and charming country girl swag, she strums them strings and doesn’t miss a beat when it comes to tapping her feet.
