Covid Concerts



These were LIVE events; no recordings are available.

Due to the Covid19 virus, most musicians have had their gigs cancelled and lots of income lost.  During these online concerts we had an attendance of over 1100 guests for these free fiddle concerts, featuring guest instructors at fiddle-online.

Thank you to all the musicians, listeners and generous donors!
