Erynn & Carl's Summer News - Online Camp / Tour / & we're Moving!

Monday, July 12, 2021


Erynn & Carl's July Newsletter - 2021

Dear Friends,
  We hope this letter finds you well and that you have been able to enjoy many days of the summer so far even if it is another unusual one. We continue to feel grateful for increased vaccinations, things opening up more, a return to our first in-person camps/gigs again and for seeing more friends and loved ones. Every day counts more now than ever before. 

We're Moving:
Carl and I have some news! We are moving to Hillsville, Virginia (25 minutes from Galax, VA) where we have bought an old Victorian farmhouse (built in 1900 but very updated) on 1.25 acres.  We’ve decided to stay in the beautiful, Blue Ridge Mountains with amazing traditional music and cool temperatures. Plus we're going to have fiddle retreats and turn this sweet abode into an Air BnB. More news on that later. The house is lovely but no one enjoys moving. Wish us luck! We are packing a lot of boxes these days…

Music Camp - SGOnline:
Want to enjoy an online fiddle camp from the comfort of your own home? 
I’ll be teaching adv-beg fiddle at Swannanoa Old-Time Week (called SGOnline this year)
July 18-23, 2021. Carl is teaching intermediate clawhammer banjo and int+-adv mandolin.
You can take 3 classes (there are many great teachers and classes to choose from!) and you should check them all out. If you are busy you have a whole month to catch up on any classes you miss. You can also participate in online jams led by great old-time musicians, join in the virtual Old-Time Social Open Mic (or just listen) and enjoy the gala staff concert (killer line-up! ...all the OT staff). All that and there's even happy-hour hang-outs every day where you can just socialize with friends and have the beverage of your choice. There’s still time to sign up but you should do it soon. Check it out at:

Upcoming in-person Events (woot!):
Aug 25 – 19 - Nimble Fingers (BC, Canada) Week 1
Aug 22 – 26 - Nimble Fingers (BC, Canada) Week 2
Aug 30 – Sept 3 – Acoustic Alaska Guitar Camp (Anchorage, AK). 
Sept 5 – 10 – John C Campbell Folk School (Brasstown, NC). 
Oct 27 – 31 – Augusta October Old-Time Week (Elkins, WV).
Carl and I will be starting up our online classes again once things settle down in the fall. We’ll be sure to let you know.

More Good News!
Old-Time Sweethearts featuring 12 old-time music couples from across the country (and produced by Rachel Eddy and myself) was glowingly reviewed and featured in the Old-Time News (a UK publication) and we even made the cover! The new, 2021 release is available from and Bandcamp.

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.
