The big boat trip

We had 2 glorious days of summer camp.  Many video clips, photos and fun moments to share.  But first, as promised: photos of the big canoe!  

Taken by Captain Bob -- here we all are at the Pawtucket Boat Launch site on the Blackstone River.

We saw lots of wildlife on our short trip: ducklings, jumping fish, and a great blue heron Eating a fish!

Summer Camp is here!

Tomorrow is the first day of RI Fiddle Project's Summer Camp.

Here are 4 reasons I'm really looking forward to it!

1. Dave Davignon will be leading a drum circle/bucket band experiment

2. Josh Rodriguez will be guest teaching along with Michelle and Rachel, working with students on improvisation and composition

3. We'll be giving informal performances in 2 settings that are new to us:

New Urban Farmers' "Garden of Life" at Galego Court, 483 Weeden St, Pawtucket
1:30-2 PM Wednesday, June 27th

and Leon Mathieu Senior Center, 420 Main St, Pawtucket
1-1:30 PM Thursday, June 28th

Feel free to stop by if you're in the neighborhood for either of these!

4. Two words: Giant Canoe.  We'll be sure to share photos after Thursday...

Many thanks to NEC's Entrepreneurial Musicianship Grants for their support of this camp.

RI Fiddle Project Summer Fiddling Intensive

RI Fiddle Project will have a 2-Day Summer Fiddling Intensive for current students at the end of June (otherwise known as summer camp!).  We are very happy to have the support of one of New England Conservatory's Musical Entrepreneurship Grants to help fund this endeavor.

Our public Pawtucket performances (say that 3 times fast) are planned for the Leon Mathieu Senior Center and New Urban Farmers' Garden of Life at Galego Court.  More details to follow!
