FiddleGrams - My favorite gig

For the past couple years, I've helped the Old Time Fiddlers deliver FiddleGrams on Valentine's Day.

What a kick!! -- It is a grand group of musicians, exquisitely organized by the talented and ever-enthusiastic Tricia Ferguson, who fiddles and sings with all her heart.
What makes it My Favorite Gig ?

  • An entire office filled with gals wiping tears from their eyes as we sing and play "Could I Have This Dance."

  • Patrons at a diner grinning from ear-to-ear as we serenade the sweet little gal in charge with "Let Me Call You Sweetheart."

  • The elderly lady who positively beamed as we sang the personalized lyrics her stepson provided.

Every delivery was unique - offered joyfully and received graciously. This year, FiddleGrams will be delivered in the Redding area on Friday, February 13th, and I can think of no better way to celebrate Valentine's Day -- bearing good tidings to smiling faces all over town.

FiddleGrams are a major fundraiser for our non-profit group, California State Old Time Fiddler's Association, District 6, and they're available year round. Fiddlers will play and sing and present your sweetheart with a card and a rose - all for only $35.
