Fiddle Club in the Media

We had a wonderful reporter and photographer from the Gazette come out for the Fiddle Club dance this past weekend, and their article, along with pictures and video, is up on their website. Show them some love and check it out!

Appeal for Content

Fiddle Club members,

I'll be in the process of developing more content for our website through April and May, and I'm looking for your ideas: links, photos, videos, memoirs, and so on. What would you like to see up on our site?

March Events & an early April

We've had a busy several weeks - the March meeting came a week late, followed by a fantastic Fiddle Club dance (more lightly attended than last year, but brilliant fun nonetheless).

And the very next weekend, this coming Sunday, is the April meeting, a week early, followed by a rescheduled Royal Mile jam a week later.

There are also a lot of events in town for National Tartan Day (April 6). It's with more than a little pride that I mention that The Devil's Tailors will be playing the National Tartan Day Festival at Market Square in Old Town Alexandria this coming Saturday, April 2nd!

There's also a National Tartan Day concert on April 8 at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis featuring the Blue Ridge Brass and Montreat Scottish Pipes and Drums with Scottish Balladeer Ed Miller (with piper EJ Jones!).

Know of any other events? Let me know!
