The Coon Holler Kids are a group of talented, young musicians dedicated to keeping the spirit of traditional bluegrass alive for the next generation and beyond.

We are proud of you, Halle & Eli! 

These two Coon Holler fiddlers did a fantastic job at the 2016 Indiana State Fair Fiddle Competition! Halle Newman earned 1st place in the Junior category (age 11 and under).  Eli Taylor placed 2nd in the 12-18-year-old category. They posed for a post-competition photo with Judy after the event on August 13th. She is super proud of both of them for all of their hard work and a job well done!

Coon Holler Kids Receive "Audience Favorite" Award 

The Coon Holler Kids competed against fourteen other performers of all ages at the 2016 Harlan Hall's Got Talent event in Marshall, Illinois. They were chosen as "Audience Favorite" by popular vote and received high remarks by the event judges. The Grass Seeds from Coon Holler Music also performed and did an outstanding job. Congratulations, kids! We are so proud of you!
