New Twitch Livestream
I know a lot of people were enjoying the daytime livestreams and possibly even more will watch as the holiday season gets underway. To keep things going I’ll be doing a new livestream on Twitch called Tunes@Noon, which will broadcast on a not too regular schedule at Noon on Wednesdays at twitch.tv/bigfiddleshow. To get notified follow me on Twitch or join my Discord and you’ll get a notification when the program goes live. The video will be archived later in the day on YouTube so you can watch it there if you miss the live version.
The Big Fiddle Show now has a discord server!
What is discord?? It’s an online service that permits the creation of a community of folks with a similar interest. In this case, patrons & fans of the Big Fiddle Show. Think of it as Facebook without the toxicity and advertising.
What can you do with it. There are text channels you can use it to find out what’s going on with Camp Possum, The Big Fiddle Show and also new and featured offerings on our Patreon. You can post and comment. Most importantly you can share and interact with other members of the server directly. There are even voice channels which you can pop onto and share live video with other members to show something you’ve learned, share a new tune, etc. The best part is none of it is public. It’s only available to members of the server.
There is a free public space and patron-only areas. Check it out by clicking the logo below. If you’re a patron connect to discord with your Patreon account to gain full access. Click the graphic below linked to an invite to my discord server.
