Fiddle Hell Online in April will include an epic online lineup of 35 live concerts, 35 live jam sessions, and 200 live workshops, for fiddle, mandolin, cello, guitar, old-time banjo, and singing. Other instruments (and listeners) are also welcome! There will be many new instructors and performers, and new sessions.
Registration will be available here before the end of January, with early bird discounts and giveaways.
To keep us all safe in this time of Covid-19, we reimagined Fiddle Hell as an online festival and music camp from Nov 5-8, 2020, and beyond. Our epic online lineup included 35 live concerts, 35 live jam sessions, and 165 live workshops, for fiddle, mandolin, cello, guitar, old-time banjo, and singing. Other instruments (and listeners) were also welcome!
Video replays of all workshops, jams, and concerts are available for 3 months past the end of the live event (through Feb 8, 2021) for attendees to enjoy. You can slow down the videos to 1/2 or 3/4 speed (without changing the pitch), which is great for jams and workshops. Just sign in to Whova as you did during the live part of the event.
If you didn't register initially, but would like to view any or all the wonderful workshops, jams, and concerts through February 8, 2021, you can register now for a reduced price. Using Whova (on your laptop, desktop, iPad, or phone), you'll also be able to download session handouts, chat with the community, and visit the virtual exhibitors.
The cost is $100 for Adults (26 - 64), discounted to $90 for Seniors (65 or older), Young Adults (18 - 25), and Kids (13 - 17).
Because of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we aren't able to accommodate kids 12 and under (sorry!).
We do ask for your good behavior online as part of the Fiddle Hell community, please. No politics or offensive posts in the Chat, no offensive photo posts (or you may be removed from Whova without a refund).
Once you register, see the Q&A below for information on how to set up your Whova account and view sessions.
Registration Questions & Answers
Click on a question to see the answer.
For iPads or other mobile devices, DO NOT follow that link! First, download the Whova Event & Conference App, then use the App to establish your Whova account, and only then look for the Fiddle Hell Online event in the App.
Whova is how you will view sessions on the agenda, download handouts, see messages and announcements, visit the virtual exhibits, and (optionally) connect with other attendees.
If you are asked for an "invitation code" when you're using an iPad to set up your Whova account, make sure to download the Whova Event & Conference App first and use the App to set up your account. Then you should be able to see Fiddle Hell Online right away as one of "My Events" or you can seach for it in "Find My Event". Even if you plan to view FHO with an iPad, it's easier to set up your Whova account first with a laptop or desktop computer if you have that option.
No, it's not. As at in-person Fiddle Hell, each registration is valid for only one attendee at Fiddle Hell Online. Any additional household member or friend wishing to watch any concerts, workshops, or jams also needs to register. At a time when all musicians' gigs have largely disappeared, Fiddle Hell Online pays all instructors, performers, and technical staff, and we rely on your registration fees to do this. Please respect the artists who are at the heart of Fiddle Hell Online by asking your friends and family to register.
Please send a check in the mail to Fiddle Hell Massachusetts LLC, P. O. Box 316, Lexington, MA 02420-0316, and let us know who it's for, their age categories, and their email addresses. We'll register them and send further instructions to their email addresses. Each attendee needs a unique email address to register.
This process can take a while (time for the check to arrive, time for Dave to get to the P.O. Box, etc.). To speed things up, as soon as you mail the check, email us that it's on the way, and tell us who is attending, what age, and their email address. We trust you, and will register the person even before the check arrives! And we'll send a confirmation back to you.
