Hello everyone! I hope this spring is finding everyone well.
This weekend, Dale Morris, Jr. is being inducted into the Texas Fiddle Hall of Fame. Dale was featured last November in a Master Fiddler Series and some of you got to meet him and hear him play. Dale plays with country music legends Ray Price and Willie Nelson. The induction happens this weekend at the Texas State Championship Fiddler's Frolics in Hallettesville, TX. Those of you who are unable to join us this year can listen to the events on Saturday online. They will be streaming live thanks to a local radio station in Hallettesville. If you would like to listen, visit the Fiddler's Frolics website at www.fiddlersfrolics.com and follow the Listen Live link. It all happens this Saturday.
Hello from Fiddlin Arkansas! Here's a quick snapshot of the Master Fiddler Series that is going on this weekend. Feel free to share this with any of your friends, colleagues, coworkers, or anyone who you think should know about it. Our featured fiddler, Junior Marriott, is a long-time veteran of the music industry. He has worked with many country stars over the years including Mel McDaniel, Faron Young and Rhonda Vincent to name a few. What an exciting opportunity! I want to send out a special thank you to our sponsors so far. They include: Salem Pharmacy, La Quinta Inn Bryant, Everett Buick GMC, Bryant Family Clinic, 312 Downtown Boutique, Purdy Good Maintenance, St. Louis Strings Violin Shop and First Security Bank. Sarah Clayton of Saline County Arts and Casey Penn of Pennwords are working hard to bring this to you through the Saline Jams program. Learn more about what they are doing at www.salinecountyarts.com and www.pennwords.com. Be sure and give them all a big Thank You when you see them! :) There are still private lesson slots open for guitar, mandolin and fiddle and there is plenty of room for you at the workshops and performance. Register today! I can't wait to jam with you this weekend! Jonathan Trawick www.fiddlinarkansas.com
