Hello from Fiddlin Arkansas!The beautiful spring weather we've been having up in Fayetteville has me itching for fiddle tunes and bluegrass. You may notice there is a new logo for The Master Fiddler Series. The logo was designed by Aarun Carter who just happens to be a National Champion Fiddler, herself! There is also a new logo for Fiddlin Arkansas to be released soon. Did you know you can vote on your favorite? The Fiddlin Arkansas Official Logo Decision lasts until March 21, so there is still time to cast your vote. Click on the image below and you will be directed to the Facebook event page and instructed on how to vote.
Did you know there is a Master Fiddler Series coming up in April? There will be plenty of jamming, workshoping, private time and even a special performance featuring Rhonda Vincent's former fiddle player, Junior Marriott. Junior is as comfortable playing hot bluegrass and swing as he is playing old Missouri square dance tunes and Texas-style fiddle tunes. Junior is also known for his ability to explain good fiddling. He is a clear communicator and I can tell you that I feel like I can play the fiddle after he explains it and I don't even play the fiddle! Here's a snapshot of what will be happening the weekend of April 6-7 (for more details, follow the links by clicking on the date):
Friday, April 6:
An Intimate Evening of acoustic roots music with Junior Marriott and Jonathan Trawick
Doors Open at 6:30 PM; Show at 7:00 PM
The Royal Theatre
111 South Market
$8 Adults; $5 Students/Seniors
