Each morning, the String Chickens will be warming up in the Brooks Grove Church so please bring your instrument and join us if you arrive early - the acoustics make us soumd just about as good as we'll ever get. YOU TOO! ;o)
On Saturday only we'll be performing for a 1/2 hour in the Barn at 12:45 - hope to see you.
OH - Mark is with us on Saturday only this year and we also hope to perform on the Main Stage a time or two with our favorite old-time piano player, Jessie Gotham!

Join The String Chickens at the Brighton Memorial Library in Rochester NY on Sunday March 10th 2019 for a lively Irish Serenade. We have been invited to entertain as part of the library's monthly "Sunday Serenade" series! Thank you very, very much Town of Brighton. And huh. As Brighton tax payers ourselves, I'm thinking that we chickens are paying ourselves to have some fun again. Huh. YES! Good job everyone!
We are fiddlers Trina Clickner, Denise Carder, and Mark Weeg, along with guitar player David Russell, and Fred Vieira on bass.

Calling All Musicians!
Join The String Chickens & Friends for a lively morning warmup. Bring your instrument and join in - start your day with traditional, old-time fiddle tune favorites.
April 2018 Update
After surviving at least one ice age and living in, three, oh maybe it was five, frosted snow globe scenarios over the past months, The String Chickens are back clucking around again. Afterall, it's SPRING. So the answer to the above question is a timely yes. Spring String Chickens. <insert chortle here>
Mark is growing is hair really long and white and is back to being the most energetic fiddler, Denise recently retired from Reed Eye, David is frequently driving to/fro Canada, Trina and the bassets still split their time between Dunedin, Rochester and Naples, Fred's Mom's new place, Legacy Cranberry Landing has sort of adopted us as their "house band". They enjoyed us SO MUCH a few weeks ago that we're invited back on June 8th, 2018.
Yesterday we played for Denise's Mom at Heather Heights!
SO, that leaves quite a few future dates open for us to come play for you and your Moms. Or Dads. The senior home circuit is a good one but it's always more fun when we are playing for special people we know. :o) 727-366-1424 - call Trina!
Hope to catch you over the summer! We'll probably be at the Mumford Fiddler's Fair - our schedule is in the works!
