This week on the Big Fiddle Show @ Nite with Patt Tiki Partay you’ll enjoy the usual brace of fiddle tunes, some songs (one of which will be “Who’s Sorry Now” our ukulele tune of the week) and related hi-jinx. Our special musical guests are a pair of fine fiddle and guitar duos. First it’s our pals Bobbi & Roland Nikles from out Washington way and then Mary Alice Bernal and Joe “the clockmaker” Sartino of Nashville make another appearance. Somebody’s going to win “Poss-feratu”. It all starts at 8:00 PM Central this Friday. CLICK HERE!

The Duffers session are coming into the home stretch. This week we’re in “A” and we’ll be reviewing A Hundred Pipers Jig, Boil the Cabbage and then a new tune will be introduced “Life in the Finnish Woods – Waltz”, which you will definitely recognize if you’re a fan of country music from the 50s.
