Hello Fiddling Friends at Maestronet- I’d like to invite you to our 8th Annual Fiddle Hell Gathering at the Colonial Inn and Masonic Lodge in Concord, Massachusetts, Nov. 2-4, 2012. An overview of Fiddle Hell 2012 is at http://www.reinerfam...troduction.html There's a full schedule of over 150 hands-on workshops and jams at http://www.reinerfam...l-schedule.html That’s twice as many sessions as last year! Our fiddle staff includes 20 excellent traditional players who are also great teachers: Alan Kaufman, Andy Reiner, Anne Hooper, Becky Tracy, Bob Alessio, Clayton March, Dave Reiner, David Kaynor, Ellen Carlson, George Keith, Hanneke Cassel, Jason Anick, Julie Metcalf, Mark Simos, Matt Glaser, Matt McConeghy, Michelle Kaminsky, Stacy Phillips, and Terri Lukačko. There will be various fiddle styles represented, including New England, Irish, bluegrass, Southern oldtime, Scottish, Cape Breton, French Canadian, Swedish, swing, gypsy, Cajun, Texas and Western Swing. The Friday Night Concert is on Nov. 2nd, 7:30-9:30PM, at the Masonic Lodge across the street (free if you’re at Fiddle Hell; walk-ins $10), featuring Andy Reiner, Becky Tracy, Dave Reiner, David Kaynor, Hanneke Cassel, Jason Anick, Matt Glaser, and Stacy Phillips. Our 52 Fiddle Hell Common Tunes are listed at http://www.reinerfam...-tune-list.html , and we have recorded them on a 2-CD set, played both fast and slow. This 2-CD set is just $15 postpaid at http://www.reinerfam....com/store.html . It’s a great way to prepare for the jams at Fiddle Hell, and to improve your learning by ear. I really hope to see you at Fiddle Hell this year! Dave Reiner
