2nd Fiddle?! Woman Proves She’s 2nd To None In Epic Impromptu Performance.

There’s a fine line between amateur musician and seasoned professional, casual hobby and all-consuming passion. Where you fall on the continuum of musical ability may be reflected in your choice of profession. For instance, the lead singer of a popular band is expected to wow the crowd with killer vocals, but what about a local karaoke star? Sometimes, however, what we expect and what we receive are two very different things.

In a real life example of shattered assumptions, a woman visiting Nashville with her daughter stunned onlookers with a bona fide fiddle-playing extravaganza!

Her daughter, Olivia Reeths, posted a video of this impromptu performance on TikTok, along with these words: “Went to a bar in Nashville and my mom told the band she plays the fiddle. The fiddle player decided to hand off his fiddle to my mom mid song and didn’t expect her to absolutely shred.”

While we can only guess at the woman’s musical background and performance history, her raw talent leaves no room for doubt. Wow, can that momma play!

Even the resident fiddle player wanted in on the action. Impressed by her mad skills and deciding to have a little fun of his own, he pretends to get fired and kicked out of the bar. Look closely in the background of the video and you’ll see him shaking his head as he walks to the door.

We love sharing stories about talented individuals who surprise others with their hidden potential. For some reason, the reward is so much sweeter when nobody could have anticipated it. Ready for some fancy fiddlin’?

Watch this musician defy expectations and remember to share with a friend.
