Hi Y’all,

Okay folks here is a chance to see a legend, Eddie Adcock at Stage 3 on Saturday in Sonora with Red Dog Ash as an opening act. This is not to be missed see details below. IF you can’t make that they are also appearing in Modesto on Friday night.

The first ever Mother Lode Chapter of District #2 of the California State Old Time Fiddlers Association is meeting at the Standard Community Church. Because of the great interest and support to preserve the art and tradition of old time fiddling, a group is coming together to support this new venture. Monthly jams will be held on the 1st Sunday of each month. The first meeting will be March 1st. You need not be a member of the CSOTF Association, although we would welcome and encourage you to join and support our organization. All musicians, who play acoustic instruments (not just fiddlers) of all skill levels may participate. A sound system will be provided on stage. Anyone may sign up and play three tunes (first come, first serve). No electric instruments will be allowed and the

only rule is that a fiddler must be present (on stage) to play with any participant.

I typically provide information about music in the five counties of San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Tuolumne, Amador and Calaveras. On occasion, I will post events out of the area, I do this as a favor to bands who live in this area and are performing elsewhere. Please do not be offended if I do not provide statewide coverage.
