Really sorry to hear that @CyndieZ - there *must* be an answer somewhere...  very strange.  But, there's always another time !   Thank you very much for your interest - and - at least you can view the shows - so we'll no doubt see you in the audience!

Just to keep everyone else updated - as it happens Jasmine @FiJaPAW has also pulled out - she notified us on the Facebook thread - so I'll just re-cap here - Jazz's plan was to play the violin part of an orchestral piece, along with a backing track - but it seems her audio equipment she needed to do that has gone on the blink - and it wouldn't work as a soloed piece - so we're down to 4 again....  cry

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

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

Ditto, glad I was able to make it to watch the morning shows featuring BillyG, Damfino and Barry ... and a bunch of us forum-folk clapping from the 4 corners of the earth!

@cid No... we can set our shows to replay, but they only stay up for 24 hours. 

@Fiddlerman Eh, this one ended up falling on its face a bit.

Mandy & I are brainstorming some new ideas. Fiddlefest we feel has run its course..our best was year 3 I think it was..13 hours of continuous fiddlin'.  Bill, Mandy and I all wore black to show Respect for John Luck's passing and for the passing of fiddlefest as well.

But something new will rise from the ashes.  I hope that ya'll will join us. performing & sharing music is what it is all about..not perfection

There is no shame in playing twinkle, youre playing Mozart

Yup indeed @Barry - a new approach, perhaps to include other instrument players on SJ may well bring an increased interest ( I did try to convince a couple but it didn't fit with their plans for the day!  )

Myself, well, I felt so horrid on that day with a head/chest-cold, I almost did a "no show" ( can you actually "do" a no-show ??? LOL yah know what I mean... ) - but the show has to go on irrespective !

Yeah, I mentioned this elsewhere on one of the FB groups - I still find it quite surprising that back at year 3 we had only around 3000 forum members and the bulk of the players came from here, with a couple of others from the SJ scene if I recall correctly.  Having hit in excess of 18,000 members now - the low uptake really does surprise me.

What doesn't surprise me one little bit though - is that some of our performers from back then have taken the experience, bitten the bullet, came to realize public playing is "not that difficult" - and have very successfully gone off to pastures new, and are doing their very own fiddle thing - and THAT in itself is a result brother, something not to be forgotten about the success of your original plan.   So there!

@BillyG I had mentioned something similar to Barry... making more of a general music fest, so people can come and play whatever they play.

I do want to get back on for a few Strings on Sunday things, to keep me from getting rusty. I felt a tad rusty for this past FiddleFest, it had been a while, haha. The regular playing on there really was a nice form of practice, and just fun 🙂

I feel horrible, even worse than my playing. I seem to have fallen into a slump where my playing sounds worse than when I first started. In any case, I had every intention of signing on and at least scaring folks with 15-minute slot. As I failed to review everyone's time slot by the time I got back for morning chores I missed the first two, and .... My bad. no excuses. I'll do better... promise

Ripton, everyone has those slumps. Often it's just you thinking this.....
