Do these get posted as a VOD anywhere for viewing if you can't watch it live?

Thanks, yes, we live stream on Facebook, and you can see us and your favorite friends. I'll get you a link, I'm learning as we go. I'll catch up.

In Upper Peninsula Michigan they get an extra 45 days of growing, so the Black Cherry Blossom #001 was grown for 80 years up there in the YOOP with the Yoopers. They are like giant elves.

After the holidays, he visits over here in Sun Town and disguises himself while he suns on the beach in Tempe.

What a wonderful new year's tradition of playing music in a coffeehouse, we've done it for years. Thanks to everyone who tuned in and thank you sincerely for the donations.

Very happy to have had 20 people join us for 3 songs each means that 60 songs get played to the public in 90 minutes.
That's the one song concept whether you sit in a circle or take time taking the stage. We believe we might be one of the few in the country, if not the only program doing this.

I started booking bluegrass at Fiddlers Dream in 1996.

There is no drinking in the parking lot, there is no tobacco inside the coffeehouse, no drugs are allowed anywhere near us. So few people are still smoking at our establishment. Take a look in this here lonely thread at the list of people who have played at our place in the past.
We notice that young people who come and play have dedicated themselves to the music, the roots and branches

We produced our own new support CD for $10, last week on Saturday morning at Fid's we made $650
That's what a worthwhile all volunteer program can do while closed during the pandemic.
We are all masking up, distancing and sanitary.
You are welcome to stop by for a free cup of coffee, pick up a CD and go play banjo.

Another very fine evening.
We have produced a fund-raising CD called Dream Big using several local artists and songwriters. $10 donation.
Take a look at our Facebook page : Fiddlers Dream or fiddlersdream.org.

Our coffeehouse is closed for the new future. We have no employees because we are non-profit. The sales of the CD have been generous
and judicious planning on our part has actually helped us pay the rent and keep going.

We've been doing the open stage on Zoom since last March, almost a year.

Without this music, we don't have a venue,

As you can see by my last post, we serve an entire community from novice to touring pro.

You should build one of these in your town. By having people open their friends feed, we are reaching the whole USA, both coasts are participating and they, too, can donate to keep us going.

So on Saturdays, we are working at the coffeehouse and doing a drive-by for the CD's, all masks, clean hands and distancing is still bluegrass. Free coffee. Jamming on the far apart benches outside.

This music kills death itself.   Here's Chance, Chance the Banjo from the Fuzzy Bottom Boys.

Thursdays, we sign in at 6pm MST start a one song rotation at 6:30pm


By the way, we've been doing the one song rotation for the last 7 years. We think we might be the only one in the country doing that.
This allows people to arrive early and play and leave after the 2nd rotation. Then other people who can't make it early then join us later and fill up the evening.
