Salute to “Pop” Sweet

Saturday, August 20, 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free

The Austerlitz History Center will host a new exhibit on the life and career of George R. “Pop” Sweet, the Famed Fiddler of Fog Hill.

The exhibition traces Sweet’s musical career and features a soundtrack that includes recordings of Pop’s fiddling and calling from 1947 that are now housed in the Library of Congress. Explored as well is Sweet’s colorful persona as a genuine backwoods character: a hunter and trapper, pursuer of the “Black Beast of the Berkshires,” and long-time Groundhog Day forecaster.
