Fiddlers' Pilgrimage: The Weiser Legacy, a tribute to the National Oldtime Fiddlers Contest and Festival featured a concert on May 10, 2013 in Boise, Idaho, and a companion radio documentary that aired on Boise State Public Radio on May 18 and on news station KBSX-FM 91.5 on May 19. The concert featured musicians and musical groups who have competed at and performed at Weiser, and the one-hour radio special goes behind the scenes of the contest, exploring the informal music-making that takes place in Weiser during fiddle week. All of the musicians featured at the concert are included in the radio show, plus many others.
