Fiddle classes start Oct. 2/ upcoming events

Hi Folks
We will be starting classes again at the Church Hall on Oct 2. For Oct 2 come at the same time you did last year and we will set new times when we see who shows up for this year. If you know of people planning to start, pass the word along.

This Saturday Sept 28th we will be playing on the street in Caribou at 11:30 AM(us time), 12:30 PM (ca time), we should be there 1/2 hr early to get tuned and ready. We will probably wear our white shirts unless it turns cold, we can check the forecast and decide on Wednesday. And of course, it is always nice to have some of the young people and dancers with us as well. They have a portable covered stage for us but I don’t know the exact location yet, they are going to let me know. Maybe they will just tow us around town

Our Fiddle-Doo is coming up on Oct 5 at the Legion, have attached a poster you may want to put up to help with the promotion.
Thanks Garold

Pick up our new CD at the Wednesday jam sessions or at our performances.
$15.00 (we will mail copies for an extra $5.00 shipping and handling — includes our trip to the post office and maybe we’ll get an ice cream at Carl’s too) Seriously, proceeds support WEF projects including sending our young folks to fiddle camp. Thank you.

Gospel music has always been a part of the Wednesday Evening Fiddlers repertoire, so to celebrate our 25th season we decided to record a Gospel album. We have included a number of Gospel standards that will be familiar to everyone.

During Feb 2013 the fiddlers spent two Saturdays at the St James United Church Hall in Perth-Andover recording the album. Included in the 30 participants were a number of our young fiddlers, and 6-year-old Emma McLaughlin led the group off on This Little Light of Mine. Since a number of our group are also great vocalists we included voices in some of the selections

A special Thank-You to Larry Adams and Paige Lavoie for doing Bass and Piano accompaniment, Mark White and Cathy Adams for contributing photos, Bill Duncan for  photos & design, and all the fiddlers who helped with the project.
