Cabin Fever Online Series

Greetings Everyone! We hope this finds you all safe and healthy. Due to the recent health concerns we have decided to cancel our Spring Workshop tour with Ben Townsend. We hope to reschedule Ben later this year or perhaps next. In lieu of our planned tour we are doing three online video series to pass the time. 

We Montanans are no strangers to social isolation, last minute cancellations and entertaining ourselves. Since we are already stocked up on food, water and TP (since we're used to not getting to town) we thought we'd spend our time bringing everyone else some musical joy in this crazy time.

Morning Tunes & Coffee

Click HERE to watch. 

With all of our care home performances cancelled we want to make sure that our home bound members get some good music as well. Since we can't go visit them we thought an hour of tunes each morning might brighten their day. Join us at 10:00am Monday- Thursday for an hour of tunes and entertainment. If you have a group that would like to do a segment just let me know. The more the merrier and let all your house bound friends know to join in watching. We'll take requests and play all our favorites. 


We hope you'll join us (virtually of course) and have some fun learning, playing, and enjoying some great music. Invite all your fiddling friends and be sure and "Like" our Facebook page to receive updates and notifications on all our workshops and happenings.
