Join us for the 2017 Ohiolina String Offβ€”our first ever guitar and fiddle competition. It's a chance to enjoy some healthy competition while showing off your know-how of knee-slapping, finger picking tunes. Bonus: If you are selected to perform, you'll receive two free weekend passes for participating!
