@Mouse -

Excellent! 

💖 That whole thread was extremely entertaining.

I would like to host the Traveling FM!  I live in Rochester NY but would take it to the beautiful 1000 Islands up on the Canadian border.

 

Please let me know what else I need to do to get on the hosting train!

@Luthie -

Hi! 

It would be super nice if you would introduce yourself in this thread:

And, tell us a little about your instrument and how long you've been playing!

Hi Luthie. We'll place you on the list. As far as I know, the list is short at this point.
Normally we want members to have been active for a while but as long as you are interested, all should flow smoothly.

We appreciate your interest. Presently Jeremiah, luthier at Fiddlershop, is playing on her. 😃

@Georganne - Please add to the list if you haven't already. Thanks

You are on the list.  Start posting so we can get to know you better, please.  We like to send her to active members.  I can't wait to see some of those islands.  Sounds fascinating.  I too love to play outside.  

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

I understand what you are saying.  I may turn out to be a less-than-ideal candidate since I'm quite introverted and very much a do-it-yourselfer.  Eventually I'll post a video of me playing Country Gardens and minuet in G which are in Sparrow's beginner song book.

If I am not an good candidate for the Traveling FM I won't be hurt.

 

I'll keep in touch here,

@Luthie - 

Sorry, TOO LATE! 

You've already proved you're NOT an introvert! 🤣 

Not hard to get interested in what people are doing here. 

You can check out our discussion on a proposed new Fiddlerman Group Project & put your 2¢ in here: 

New Projects For 2021

Or maybe check out & voice your views on posts in the Genre Threads?

Emilie is right. LOL
Too late.

@Luthie - We need people to host the traveler but it's just hard to justify sending her to someone who we may never hear from again. We just want to know that you are serious.
So far, you seem to be a great candidate since you have applied and responded.
And please don't worry about the type of reply's you might get here on the forum since our members are positive and extremely respectful of each other. We don't tolerate rude responses or any type of snobbery here. 😁

"@Luthie - We need people to host the traveler but it's just hard to justify sending her to someone who we may never hear from again."

You see, to me as an introvert, the cool part about the TFM is not who it went to but WHERE it went.  Even the map showing were it has been suggests this too!

 

"We just want to know that you are serious."
I'm very serious about taking it to the 1000 Islands including Boldt Castle and Singer Castle (so, would want to host in the summer, since I don't go to the 1000 Islands in the winter).  I'm very serious about playing the violin.  That said, I am likely an infrequent poster on this forum though I will use the website content to help me advance my skills. 

I would only keep it for a few weeks at most so best to have someone lined up after me who wants it sent to them!

 

 I will completely understand if I'm not a good host candidate.

Cheers,

Luthie

To everyone,

 

I'm not trying to hurt anyone's feelings here.  Please don't take my interest or lack of personally.  

Right now, with where I'm at in my life, I rarely participate in community forums.  That said, the idea of the TFM very much captures my imagination and I feel I can bring something cool to the initiative.  This is very typical of how I interact with strangers - when the focus is on an activity, not me or them - I can get pretty wound up!  I know that introverts can be "interesting" to get along with sometimes.  

Maybe next summer would be better than this summer for me to host the TFM, since I will know a bunch of songs by then and can play a different one at each 1000 Islands destination.

Cheers,

Luthie

HI all,

I woke up last night and couldn't go back to sleep due to thinking about the TFM!  I made a plan for hosting it next summer in July.  I hope you all like this plan...

If I'm allowed to host I will take the TFM to the 1000 Islands.  I will play a song at Boldt CAstle, Singer Castle, on top of the 1000 Islands bridge and maybe even take it to CAnada (if the border reopens).

I will hire a drone videographer to capture the adventure. I will have a picture book made up afterwards to memorialize the adventure

I will send out press releases to all the local news outlets many of which will eat up this kind of story (trust me) and I would expect to get interviewed by several of them, including the local TV station in Watertown NY and The Thousand Island Sun (newspaper).

I will learn at least 5 songs specifically to play at the special locations.  I will become accustomed to playing for people (which I am not for the violin, but am for golf).

The Star Spangle Banner, to be played from my boat with Boldt Castle fireworks in the background

America the Beautiful (Singer Castle)

??something suitable for the grand ballroom at Boldt CAstle (let's have a contest to pick this song)

The Castle Interior — Official Boldt Castle Website – Alexandria Bay NY in the Heart of the 1000 Islands

Happy Birthday (to me...8/1) in a variety of keys and

This Land is Your Land (Thousand Island Bridge).

Sidewalk Information : (tibridge.com)

 

An additional goal for me will be to learn vibrato by then so I can do the SSB justice!

Your feedback is welcome.

I'm excited!

Kay,
You'll be a perfect candidate. The reason we inquired was that we don't know you. You don't have to post frequently, though you are already posting a lot and I like that. No pressure at all.
By next summer we'll know you well. :)
Sounds like a great trip that you are planning.

One of Fiddlershop's apprentice luthiers, Jeremiah, is currently hosting the Traveling Fiddle in Miami. He got together with some friends and performed a couple of pieces for us. Please enjoy!
