New Museum Exhibit – Rhythm Bones Contests

There are only two current rhythm bones contests, a Bones & Spoons contest sponsored by the National Traditional Country Music Festival and the All-Ireland Bones Competition in Abvbeyfeale Ireland. The last item on this page about a 1927 contest suggests that there must have been many such contests. It is easy to imagine that the flamboyant players of the 1900s would want to see who is the best of them. Click HERE to see the new Exhibit. Want to research this topic?
