Gabe Brien Takes Second Place in International Fiddle Contest


The 43rd Annual International Old-Time Fiddle Contest was held on June 9th at the International Music Camp near Dunseith, ND. Gabe Brien from HEI's Minot office took second place in the Adult division! Gabe has competed and placed in this contest at least nine times in his musical career.

Fiddlers participated from Arizona, Florida, North Dakota, Manitoba, and Minnesota for trophies and cash prizes totaling more than $2,000. A Minot High School graduate and resident, Shelby Huston, took the overall championship.

Congrats, Gabe, and keep up the hard work!
