@arkmaverick -

Where have you been?  Missed you here on the forum! 

Only have a minute - I'm in the middle of workshops at the Online Fiddle Hell Festival. 

Kateryna's playing is a whole other world of wonderful!

Can you tell me the name of the piece she is playing? 

It's really beautiful - appreciate you shared this.

THANK YOU! 

Loved learning about Kateryna and I'll check out more music by Myroslav Skoryk.

Also, it's great you made it to Fiddle Hell! 😊

This is beautiful. The Facebook link wouldn’t work for me, it looked like maybe the post wasn’t public. But this is lovely.

@damfino -

The facebook link up in the thread heading works, but here's a direct link:

Pls help my Ukraine refugee friend and her family

 

@arkmaverick - 

I just remembered where I'd heard "Melody" - recently posted this: 

The Norwegian Chamber Orchestra dedicated their performance of Myroslav Skoryk's "Melody" to the people of Ukraine.

Showing Support For Ukraine With Music

 

Figured I'd go ahead & post this - in case someone hasn't seen it.

...forgot to tell you how much I love the ornate inlay on your fingerboard. 

Did you catch the Special Presentation by Rev. Robert Jones, on "Incorporating Music Into Your Storytelling" last Friday night, at Fiddle Hell?

I liked that fingerboard myself as a matter of fact that is what led me to purchase that fiddle about 6 yrs ago. It has a fake Italian label inside.  It’s definitely not Italian. I think it is Nippon maybe 1920s .  The fingerboard was probably added much later. It does play very good with a mellow voice!

Rev Robert Jones…I had it on my agenda to watch that but I missed it!  Hopefully I can get it in the replays.

Did anyone see a link by Kateryna herself? Is that the violin that we donated to her?

I have not received any word from her since we sent it.

@Fiddlerman, this link, from the original post, is all I could find:

https://fiddlerman.com/wp-cont.....G_1659.MOV

I searched the internet and came up empty. I then searched her name with Facebook in the search. Many by that name, I don't do Facebook, so not able to look. The only video seems to be the one in this thread. Looks like a new Soloist violin.Sounds wonderful.

Fiddlerman, this video was posted by Kateryna on her Facebook page. I copied and shared it. This is the wonderful violin you donated!  She was playing for refugees in a church the week after she received it. I sent her a PM to let her know that you haven’t heard from her. I hope that she will update you here soon.

Thanks,

We did get an update from her. I just wasn't up to date. We're so happy that we were able to help her out.
