            Jake had a number of rewarding experiences with his wins at Clifftop and Galax (2006).  He took first place in old-time fiddle at both festivals.  Jake and the Whoopin Hollar String band took first place in traditional band at both festivals (2006).  He was also awarded the Best All-Around Performer trophy at Galax.  This was the second time he won first place Fiddle and Best All-Around Performer  and the third time he has played with the winning old-time band at Galax.  Also, be sure to look at the fall 2006 issue of Fiddler Magazine where Jake is featured as the cover story.  Dara had a great run also, she backed the winning fiddlers in the senior ( Jerry Lewis) and the adult (Jake) categories at Clifftop, and played guitar with the winning band at Galax.

            Jake has completed two internships.  The first was at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. with Jeff Place in music archives.  The second was with the West Virginia Humanities Council where he worked on the Mountain Music Heritage Project with Dr. Ken Sullivan, Matt Meacham, and Mark Payne. 

            To everyone who has supported Jake over the years, we offer our heartfelt gratitude.  Your kind words, sharing of tunes, instruction, and friendship have meant so much.  You are all very dear to our hearts

             Krack’s Fiddle Shop is open in its off-season location in Orma, West Virginia.  Come up for a visit and enjoy the beautiful countryside views here from the porch of the shop.  Jake will be giving a Fiddle Workshop in June 2008, along with one on one fiddle lessons and one on one weekend workshops.  For info or to sign up call 304-655-7504.
