She played 'til the cows came ...OVER!

Here I am in Big Sur CA on vacation playing until the cows came over. VERY FUNNY. Zoom in the cows as they come over the rise through the field. They stop. They listen. They continue to approach.

The Chickens - they're BACK
but is it SPRING or STRING ?!?

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>

Personal Update
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!

Kettlefest 2017 - Casual Old Time Front Porch Fiddle Tunes

One of our favorite, morning sessions these past few years has been casual morning fiddle tunes on the cabin front porch at Kettle Ridge Farm. Come kick back and join us in opening the 3rd annual Kettlefest - wake up to a few foot-stomping morning tunes on the cabin front porch!

We'll be there Sat, September 16th 10:00-ish until 12:00-ish up on the hill, right near the chicken races. :o) Yep, er, we can't help ourselves - we're flocking right back there again this year to roosting and fiddle-rabble amongst our 2017 chicken kin.

SO git on up and meander over early on Saturday morning (10-noon), September 16, 2017 for some casual old-time tunes at the opening of Kettlefest 2017.

Kettlefest is held at Kettle Ridge Farm in Victor, NY - Visit their web site.

Each year there many activities & marvels. Everyone loves these chickens.

Come enjoy cabin porch tunes, 10-noon! Almost everyone loves these chickens.
