The band known as Fiddleworms was formed in 1994 and is signed with Heart of Gold Records. The band name is based on folklore from the Muscle Shoals area called "fiddling for worms" in which a young tree sapling by the river is split and a saw is run over it. The vibrations from the saw are said to cause large earthworms to come to the top of the mud, which are called "fiddleworms."
Fiddleworms play a wide array of original songs as well as several covers. Their music includes elements of original and traditional rock, southern alternative, jazz, reggae and folk They are featured each year as a regular act at the W. C. Handy Music Festival.
