Erynn Marshall & Carl Jones Online Workshops Sunday, August 25th

Saturday, August 24, 2019


Hi Fiddle Hangout Friends,

Online Workshops this Sunday, August 25th. They are the last ones we will give on that has decided to wind up it's platform after 10 amazing years.

Hope you can join us!

We will be teaching one of our very favorite tunes: Carroll County Blues in the key of G. I learned my version first-hand from Missouri fiddler, Bob Holt and it has a bit of me in the version too. The tune brought us some luck this August at Clifftop. Old Drake won 3rd place traditional stringband and Carroll County Blues got us into the finals. Here's when are workshops are tomorrow:

1pm Old-Time Banjo with Carl (All times EST Virginia time zone)

3pm Old-Time Fiddle with Erynn

5pm Old-Time Mandolin with Carl

7pm Guitar Back-up in G/ playing on a crooked tune with Carl

To join in go to, donate $10 and watch at the scheduled time. You can see us, we can't see you but you can ask us questions in real time in the text blog.

Please share the info with friends who'd enjoy these workshops too. Although Concert Window is winding up we'll still do future online workshops. Details of that to come this fall.

Here is a video of us playing Carroll County Blues at Clifftop

Hope you can tune in and enjoy learning a new, trad tune!

cheers, Erynn Marshall & Carl Jones

Erynn Marshall is an old-time fiddler who lives in Galax, Virginia and is known internationally for her traditional music. Erynn learned the nuances of Appalachian old-time fiddling from rare recordings and visiting 80-95 year-old southern fiddlers. Her effortless, transportive way of playing and seems to channel the spirits of the old-timers. Erynn performs at festivals, teaches at music camps around the globe, and tours with her husband - songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Carl Jones. Her tunes are becoming common repertoire in fiddle circles. Erynn won 1st place fiddle at “Clifftop” (The Appalachian Stringband Festival) and was the first woman to do so. She has recorded six albums and appeared in five films (Voices of Virginia, the Clifftop Experience I’ll Fly Away Home, Conversations with Old-Time Musicians,” plus the upcoming Never Met a Stranger). She is coordinator for Swannanoa Old-Time Week and Program Director for Alleghany JAM (Junior Appalachian Musicians) a non-profit that helps children learn traditional music afterschool.
