When Fin the fiddler isn’t out doing some exciting dive, cross-country (3,000 mile) bike ride or countin’ mayflies, or ice fishing... or walking his dog, he’s occasionally online. 

Write him here if you’re interested in us playing for your next event.  Fin likes to be fed and drinks really, really good beer.  If those two incentives are added in your offer, he’ll probably get back to you pretty quick. 

Cast for Fin the fiddler here.

And if you can’t reach Fin, or just want to write an email to someone else with a fish name, contact Gill.  His preferences in beer are higher than Fin’s, but he’s also pretty easy goin’... comes with age, I guess. Drop yer guppie for Gill here.  

We may be old, but we are mobile. And every now and then we do like to get outa town (or across town), if invited. We love playing in backyards, basements, barns, garages, we’ve even played a farmer’s market outa the back of truck!

In fact, if you’re lookin’ to have a fun event and need some real music, call us. We know people! And if’n they’re busy, we’ll come play for ya (for a small fee, of course).

We got an invitation to play for the Minnesota Historical Society’s 9-days of music in the summer of ’09.  What a GREAT audience for music and stories of life in early America. 

And in the summer of ’11 we were invited (again!) by the Minnesota Historical Society to play for their “Minnesota History Day” at the Minnesota State Fair.  Part of our performance featured a square dance.  Yee-ha!
