Kansas/Wakarusabreakdown 

Dancing when the music moves you isn't just encouraged — it's a major part of each performer's success at the 28th-annual Kansas State Fiddling and Picking Championships, which began Saturday and conclude today in Lawrence. "This event emphasizes that this music is participatory," event organizer Gayle Sigurdson says. "Listening is secondary."Saturday featured workshops geared primarily toward experienced musicians, but today beginning at noon at South Park (12th Street and Massachusetts in Lawrence), old-time music will dominate, with concerts and eight contests, including banjo, fiddle-playing and flat-picking categories. New to this year's festival are three fiddling categories for youth, seniors and those in between.Admission is free, but donations are welcome. To see a full schedule of work­shops, events and activities for children, see kansasfiddlingandpicking.org.
