Online Festival for ALL TYPES of String Instrument Musicians! 

"Fiddle, Cello, Mandolin, Guitar, Old-Time Banjo, Singing and More!"

Everyone check out the 2021 April Fiddle Hell Festival schedule?

There's an AMAZING (very diverse) 200 Workshops, 35 Concerts and 35 Jams (I counted 284 total) over this 4 Day Festival!

I'm freaking out because I can't possible get in on all of the workshops I really want to! 😲 I'm afraid I'll fry my brain 🤯 - and styles of music from all over the World! 🤗

@Ilona , @Mouse - 

There's several virtual Cello Workshops at this Fiddle Hell Online Festival - you might be interested in!

https://www.fiddlehell.org/

@GregW -

Thanx for that, Greg!  Hope people will check it out. 

Was also hoping if I put the name of this upcoming Festival to a thread of it's own, it might get more attention. 

I'm seriously overwhelmed with the fabulous line up they have for April!

I hadn't signed up yet because

I mistakenly assumed you paid for individual workshops. 

But, I was wrong!

I didn't realize, until I read it yesterday -

There is only ONE (small) PRICE for the WHOLE FESTIVAL!!!

...on my to do list for tomorrow!

I checked this, but the time zone is definitely a problem to me. Almost all interesting cello workshops will be in the middle of the night! 😭 I just read that they will be recorded, but it’s maybe not exactly the same feeling to be a part of this.

I didnt ask a question after the fact but there is a place in each workshop to do that.  also, almost every one of these fiddlers that ive emailed through their provided links have responded.  In some cases have provided sheet music, so there would definatley be a way to ask a question later.  If that is all that is holding you back maybe consider that or email Dave Reiner at their website and ask him directly about how that would work.  There really is alot of great content.

yes but its really more of a play along with who is hosting more than a jam.. The latency would make an all out jam very interesting.  The "jams" were cool but the various workshops are makes this event more valuable i think.

Hey, Thanks @GregW ! 

Didn't know they were showing any workshops early!  

I signed up, but haven't loaded the whoova app, yet.  I'm TOTALLY exhausted  from this past week of preparing Easter fun for the Grandkids. 😵 

🤔 Haven't even gone thru to choose what workshops I really want to concentrate on, either. 

Glad you signed up @SharonC !  

Nice that at least the 3 of us will be able to discuss our experiences with this April's Fiddle Hell. 🤗

Just had the most amazing day at the Online

Fiddle Hell Festival! 

Watched 8 hours of LIVE, interactive, Fiddling workshops

and asked questions!!! 

Here's what I chose for the day:

♥ Learned tips and cleared up some mysteries at a Jam of

Nordic Tunes with Vidar Skrede! 

♥ Learned a Simple Tune from Rogaland, Norway -

also from Vidar Skrede! 

♥ Learned a Latin Fiddle Tune - Call and Response, tips/info and some great

history with Jesus Florido (he has a Glasser 6 string)!

♥ Learned 2 great Traditional Tejano Conjunto Fiddle tunes and

tips from Belen Escobedo! 

♥ I acquired some Groove With Charanga Riffs taught by Skye Steele!

♥ Learned some iconic Jazz Manouche, Gypsy Jazz tunes and

tips with Duane Padilla! 

♥ A Little history, listened to a few Scandinavian Polska, then learned a

really nice one of them from Vidar Skrede! 

♥ Also learned about Improv and Variations on fiddling

with Rodney Miller! 

All this was only the tip of the iceberg!

... tomorrow's another day in Fiddle Hell (it's really Fiddle Heaven)! 🤗

only been able to watch the Clayton March and Raceal Eddy recordings so far, but all workshops will be up for 3 months.  Ill probably miss the live versions.  but stil worth it.  I think its possible to still signup if anyone still on the fence.  seems like they did that in the earlier event.

You can STILL sign up/register for Fiddle Hell! 

3 days left of LIVE events online. 

What I watched was just a fraction of what was available to learn!

It's definitely worth it, even if you can't watch live

(you can still email questions) 

3 months to watch & learn from hundreds of workshops with downloadable

handouts of supportive sheet music and music information! 

...and concerts! 

https://www.fiddlehell.org/

...btw, I keep all my privacy (my preference) and I don't enable my camera since I want to be more of an observer this time, but I do ask LIVE questions (chat box or LIVE audio). 🤗

I Love Music Smiley

Day 2 of Fiddle Hell! 

I picked 8 HOURS of great LIVE Fiddling, Friday! 

Here's what I chose for the day:

♥ Learned about some great tunes at the "Slow Scottish Jam"

with Barbara and Robert McOwen! 

♥ Improved my bow hold and bowing technique for a great

Irish tune with Caitlin Warbelow!  

♥ Learned a fabulous Scottish March

from Hanneke Cassel! 

♥ Tried my hand at some Double Shuffle Bowing for the

"Buck Fever Rag", with Dave Reiner! 

♥ Learned about Bowing for Rhythm and Groove

with Alex Hargreaves! 

♥ Watched and listened to some great Irish music by

Kevin Burke - he played requests! 

♥ Learned Timefeel & Ornaments for a Scottish Strathsbey

from Hanneke Cassel! 

♥ My Ear Training came in handy as I learned

a microtonal, Turkish Violin Tune

from Beth Bahia Cohen

♥ Finally, I had the pleasure to learn a hauntingly beautiful

Swedish Polska from Lena Johnson -

as the Sun was rising in Sweden!

(no, this isn't Sweden)

Can't wait for Day 3 of Fiddle Hell!

@SharonC  @GregW @ELCBK and all -

Yup - just a quick browse and caught my name mentioned by one or other of you - I can't' use Zoom here with any reliability, but I'll keep my eye on what's going on via reports on the forum - cool.

TY for the mention though !

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

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