HI Folks: The countdown is on! World Fiddle Day is in exactly 2 days.
PLAYERS: WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING
1. A MUSIC STAND (sturdy if possible – bring clothes pins to prevent your music from blowing around)
2. YOUR OWN MUSIC in a binder printed out from www.worldfiddledaytoronto.wordpress.com and arranged in playing order. If you are printing jogs from the site, you should still go to the dropbox to get the list, maybe check out the Jammer’s Almanac, etc. We will not have time to let people rifle through piles of posse sheets to look for the next piece, so it is important that you have it in order ready to go. Some tunes will segue right into the next.
HARBOURFRONT is a bit of a piano to get to right now and parking is expensive. If you can possibly get there without a car, it is recommended. This is from their website:
“Please be advised of a road closure that may impact your trip to Harbourfront Centre. Due to ongoing construction, southbound Lower Simcoe Street will be closed between Lakeshore Boulevard and Queens Quay West between May 7 and 22. Temporary route to underground parking: South on York Street from Lakeshore Boulevard, and west on Queens Quay West.”
There are more directions on their site for walking (8 minutes from Union Station) or bus (509 from Union Station).
Check Facebook for any last minute updates, and definitely, invite people to come listen. It’s going to be awesome! Anne Lederman will be appearing on Breakfast Television Thursday morning and CP24 Saturday morning if you’re an early riser.
