Local, Joyful Valentines

For a couple years, I 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 February 12, 13 and 14th. FiddleGrams are a major fundraiser for the 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 $40.

You can order a Fiddlegram online at the CSOTFA website: click here.
