Click to enlargeHi Everyone! We've got a new fiddle giveaway that just started, plus I'm excited to announce the launch of our new Luthier Directory--finally, a place to go to find someone who can fix a fiddle!

Festival season is upon us--I hope you all find time to get out there and play!

~ Eric Schlange, Fiddle Hangout Webmaster

Luthier Directory Launched

We just took our Luthier Search live. It's very similar to the Teacher Search, except of course it's for people who built, set up, and repair fiddles, instead of teaching others how to play them!

If you're a luthier, please create a free listing in the new database. Enjoy!
