Fred Beavers: La. Folklife treasure
At the young age of 80 years old there is one thing that still holds true for Ruston resident Fred Beavers — fiddling.
Learning to play at the age of 13 from his father, grandfathers and great uncles, Fred picked up a hobby that would fall to the wayside at times and yet still come back into his life.
Originally from Homer, Fred said by the time he was 17 he thought he was “really good stuff.”
