The Jink Practice Competition - Organized by Mari Black who will be joined by other Online Jink faculty

 

A long-time Jink tradition, this event is a chance for you to feel what it’s like to participate in a traditional Scottish Air + MSR performance.  At Jink, this is a welcoming, friendly, supportive event where new folks can try out the feel of a brand new MSR, and growing/experienced Scottish fiddlers can hone their performance skills.  Each performer will play part or all of an Air + MSR program, and receive constructive written feedback from our panel of faculty “judges.”  No points, no prizes, no comparisons - just a chance for folks to play for each other and improve their traditional Scottish-style performance skills.

 

NOTE: Sign-up in advance is required.  If you didn’t pre-register for the competition on your Registration Form but would now like to do so, please email jinkdiddle@aol.com with subject line COMPETITION to check if a spot is available.  The number of ‘competitors’ may have to be limited.
