The Traveler does the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival.  

  

WOW Georganne!  That was awesome!  I loved how you were smiling the whole time.  Looked like you had a blast.  The lead singer has a voice doesn't she!?  That last tune was my favorite but what was the instrumental around 4:40?  Very cool.  Just all around very neat.  Thanks for sharing that one! Great job.

  

Chere ju rose?  Here's the video I took to try to learn it.  He had such fancy fingering though, it was hard to pick up.  I felt he was there more to show off then to show us stuff.  All the other instructors were great though.

Thanks for sharing. For quite a while Youtube has not allowed me add videos to the traveling fiddles youtube playlist.....

However, I was able to get a link for you all to collaborate.

Click here to share your youtube on that playlist.

  

@Fiddlerman  I click there but still not seeing how to get my videos on that playlist.  Help!

I've never used a playlist that way, but here is what their help page says:

If anyone has used this function successfully, please let us know how you did it. I could log off my own youtube account and log in on a different one to test it when I find some time. 🙂

Hey everyone. We are looking for someone to take over Fiddle Chick's responsibility with the traveling fiddle.

She has been working hard with this for years and understandably feels that she needs a break from the responsibility.

If anyone is interested in the task, please reach out to Fiddle Chick or I.

I would greatly appreciate the help. It's not easy as many people change their minds about hosting and we can't ship to everyone who asks either. The local list has shrunk tremendously. We have a few in Alaska that want to host but none in the US at this time.

Hey I am getting married next month.  If I can keep it a while longer, it can go on my honeymoon to other parts of Alaska with me.

At this point, it's a blessing. Congratulations by the way. 🙂
Keep it until further notice. I'm sure the traveler will enjoy it. 😉

I'd be willing to take on the position of coordinator for the Traveler.

@Fiddlerman @Georganne 

I was the next in line for it but was not guaranteed I would not have to ship overseas. I don’t want to deal with that, or that added expense. I was told the next two were overseas, or something like that, but also the chance I would have to ship it overseas was unlikely. That did not make sense, actually. So, I emailed back. Saying that I did not think it would work out.

I also do not do videos so my having it would not add anything to its story. I decided it would best to let it go to someone else. It would have been very exciting and fun, but given all the wonderful videos and places people take it, my having it would really not have added to its history. 

It was kind of sad, but probably better.

@cid - You just happened to be the last person on the US list. I can personally guarantee that you won't have to ship it overseas. I can pay to ship it overseas or to Alaska when the time comes.
You're now next on the list to host the traveler after Georganne's honeymoon. I'm happy that the traveler will be visiting you. 🙂
Georganne, you are the perfect person for the task.
Thanks so much. We'll be in touch.
Fiddle Chick will send you everything she has. 🙂 I don't believe there are that many on the list now.

Hi everyone. Sorry I’ve been absent lately. I’m just so busy with other things right now. @Georganne thank you for taking over the coordination of The Traveler! I’ll send you a PM with the contact info for the few who are left on the list. And congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Any chance The Traveler will be there serenading the guests? 😁

Let the bow flow.

Cid, even if you don't post videos once you get the traveller, I'm sure we'll hear all about it!!!
