Smithville Fiddlers’ Jamboree announces Noah Goebel will be performing


Noah Goebel, a 14-year-old fiddler from Elkton, Kentucky, represented the Smithville Fiddlers’ Jamboree at the Grand Ole Opry playing a lively ‘fiddle tune’ for the Opry Square Dancers. Noah performed Saturday, May 25, 2024. The Opry has partnered with the Smithville Jamboree since 2022 to honor the tradition and talent of country music fiddlers.

Noah has secured the Grand Champion Fiddling Title at the Smithville Fiddlers Jamboree and Crafts Festival for the second consecutive year. Notably, he also won the Junior Fiddling contest. In the showdown, he outperformed Senior Fiddling Champion Sarah Harris of Rockvale, earning the Berry C. Williams Memorial Award. As the 2023 Grand Fiddle Off Champion, the Grand Ole Opry once again invited Noah.

The Smithville Jamboree thanks Dan Rogers and the Grand Ole Opry for promoting the youth from our festival. The 53rd Annual Smithville Fiddlers Jamboree and & Crafts Festival will be held July 5th-6th, 2024. For more information, visit For more info and ticket information for the Opry, visit
