Fiddle Me This 

We had our doubts about the stand-alone coolness of the fiddle, but then we heard Amanda Shaw's funked-up version of "The Devil Went Down to Georgia." She won our musical souls in that contest, and smoke was coming off her strings. The 18-year-old New Orleans fiddler, singer and all-around good-looker has a style that's tough to pin down in musical terms (jazzy, Cajun, bluesy), but her stage show is the stuff that spontaneous clap-alongs are made of. She and her band will bring down the house at the KU Lied Center of Kansas (1600 Stewart Drive in Lawrence, 785-864-3469) tonight at 7 for 90 minutes of family-friendly foot stomping. The cost of the show is a recession-friendly $0. Shaw's star is rising fast — best see her now, while it's free. For details, see lied.ku.edu.
