  @Fiddlerman - yes indeed - "long after we have all put our bows down"  ( silent bows, if you know what I mean - well - it comes to us all )

  @SethroTull86 - in the post above, after the dance band finishes, I give a long chat about how the fiddle is shared, what we can do with it as hosts, and so on.   Trust me, you will have a lot of fun when you finally receive her !    

I am totally on board with a never ending journey. I can only imagine how much character she has.

Would be awesome for someone that knew the providence for this violin to tell The Traveler's story. Perhaps one of us should write a book about it one day?

Where's the list being kept? I might be interested in adding my name... maybe the summer months would be best, as I plan to try to go to a chamber music workshop every summer from now on.

@AndrewH I think if you PM @Fiddlerman he'll get you on the list 🙂


I was thinking of adding my name back to it to host it for a second time. 🙂

fiddle chick - Deborah, has the list. She is in charge. 🙂

@Donald - community member and fiddle-brother - it would be useful if you could possibly give us some kind of update on the community fiddle, you know, "The Traveler" - like tell us exactly where she is on her "slow boat" to Brazil....   I assume you have the details...

Much Appreciated man, thank you !  thumbs-up

EDIT: Of course - I also meant to reference @augustoad - I assume you have not yet received her...   Because I KNOW you would let US know...   Equally - if you (Augusto) have any news - which I assume you don't - please do let us know...

This just feels "bad"....  A whole year has passed by, and more, and all we managed were 5 players (well, not counting Donald who didn't actually play her) - all the 4 UK hosts held her for the agreed 4 or so weeks... 

Let's get this sorted....

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
