He has never had a hit record and is rarely seen on television. But Shoji Tabuchi, a country fiddler, born and raised in Japan, is a legend in Branson. He is a master violinist and is unequaled anywhere for showmanship.

For 30 years, fiddler, and world-famous violin player Shoji Tabuchi has been performing at his own theater in Branson. You now have the opportunity to see him at the Effingham Performance Center in Effingham, IL.

While he grew up practicing and playing classical music and became famous for his remarkable talents on the violin, Shoji pursued his passion for country music to become one of the top fiddle players in the world! Shoji’s show incorporates a wide variety of music styles and incredible musicianship. The show will take you on a journey from classical to country music, and leave you thoroughly entertained throughout the performance.
