Come on out and bring a friend.&nbsp;</p> <p><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: Helvetica; ">The Monadnock Mountain Music Series at Silver Ranch In Jaffrey returns with two shows this month of great southern oldtime fiddle music. Rhys Jones on fiddle and Meredith Watson on guitar will perform on Sat Nov 21st at 7:30pm. Rhys Jones has been playing traditional Appalachian, French-Canadian and Irish fiddle music for 30 years, has won both fiddle and band contests at The Appalachian String Band Festival (Clifftop), and is regarded as &quot;one of the bright lights of the current generation of traditional performers&quot;. Meredith Watson is a gifted guitarist who is digging through the archives of traditional American music, tapping the source of the old songs with a nimble and eloquent new voice. On Sat Nov 28th, two masters of oldtime music, fiddler Alan Jabbour and banjoist Ken Perlman each will present a 3 hr workshop at 1pm and then perform a concert together at 7:30pm. Alan started to fiddle in the 1960's and learned directly from musicians like Henry Reed and Tommy Jarrell and performed with the Hollow Rock Stringband, an important link in the instrumental music revival of the 60's. Ken Perlman is considered one of the top clawhammer banjo players in the world, known in particular for his skillfull adaptations of Celtic tunes to the style. Seating is limited, $10 suggested donation. $30 for the workshop. Silver Ranch is located at 183 Turnpike Rd, Jaffrey, NH For more info:&nbsp;<a href="mailto:rich@fiddlinrich.com">rich@fiddlinrich.com</a>&nbsp;or 603-532-7314</span></p> Fiddlin Rich newsletter Mon, 16 Nov 2009 18:25:34 -0600 rich 121 at http://fiddlinrich.com Sept 25th at the Bull Run Shirley Ma http://fiddlinrich.com/node/115 <p>&nbsp;Howdy friends and neighbors, &nbsp; Just a short note to let you know Ill be opening the show on Fri Sept 25th 8pm at the Bull Run on Rt 2a in Shirley Ma for David Buskin and Robin Batteau.
