A Harmonica-Filled Registration

Special thanks to Ned Boyer for ensuring our 2011 RI Fiddle Project registration day was harmonica-filled!  Every student (and some siblings and friends) got to go home with a new harmonica, new inspiration, and some handy instructions on how to get started exploring this new instrument.   It was a really nice treat on the first day back!

Today at L'il Rhody Rib Fest

Lots of good fiddling at the L'il Rhody Rib Fest today at Slater Mill.  Michelle performs with Magnolia Cajun Band from 1-2PM, and RI Fiddle Project will be at the "Fiddling Zone" from 2:15-3:15PM, where you can hold and try a fiddle.  All this is part of the giant Pawtucket Arts Festival happening throughout September.  More details are here.
