Patt’s new piano instructional series is underway.
Join Patt & Me every Wednesday evening at 8:00 Central for an old-fashioned jam session. Yes, you can play along across the internet just like our forbearers did, only they had to use a candle to see the keyboard. Just go to my YouTube Channel and look under upcoming livestreams.
Join for Camp Possum Most Saturdays @ 11AM Central
We learn a new tune each week and practice the others we’ve already learned. It’s FREE!
Take The Big Fiddle Show Tour
Big Fiddle Show – The Pre-Show
Come over to twitch.tv/bigfiddleshow 30 minutes or so before each Big Fiddle Show broadcast and enjoy the pre-show. Watch Patt & I warm-up and chat with us before the show starts. To get notified follow me on Twitch or join my Discord and you’ll get a message when the program goes live.
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.
