BIG NEWS!

The MURRAY FREEDOM FESTIVAL is now registered with the State of Nebraska and the IRS as being a 501(c)(3) NONPROFIT CORPORATION!! The generosity and hard work of our volunteers all working together made this happen in just a couple of months. This annual 4th of July celebration in Murray wouldn't be possible without friends working together for the common good.  Let's keep it going!  Donations given to the Freedom Festival are now tax-deductible!

It's funny when someone says, 'I don't know our plans for the 4th yet...it's so far away'. Well, if you would just say, 'I'll be in Murray for the Freedom Festival', then you DO have a plan! Don't procrastinate...MARK YOUR NEW CALENDARS for the FIRST TUESDAY of EVERY MONTH when volunteers meet at Murray's Town Hall at 7 p.m. to plan and organize the celebration. (In June there will be an extra meeting or two as the big day gets closer.) EVERYONE'S welcome to join in and share their suggestions and ideas. You don't have to be a Murray resident.

The next meeting will be February 2nd. Hope to see you there!

SCHOOLHOUSE CELTIC FIDDLING CAMP

The Old Avoca Schoolhouse in Avoca, Nebraska will be hosting a special "Schoolhouse Celtic Fiddling Camp", for fiddlers, violists, mandolinists, guitarists, and ukulele players. Music from Ireland, Scotland, and Wales will be featured.  The sessions will be led by championship fiddler and author, Deborah Greenblatt.  Each participant will receive a copy of Deborah's latest publication, the Celtic Fiddler's Song Book.  

The camp will be on Wednesday, March 9  - Friday, March 11, from 9 AM to 1 PM.  You can sign up for 1 day, or 2 days, or all 3 days. 

On Wednesday, participants will be mostly reading tunes, using sheet music in standard notation.  We'll be learning melodies, harmonies, and chords.  You will be improving your sight reading, and experiencing fiddling fun.  

On Thursday, we will be mostly playing tunes by ear, so feel free to bring your recording gadgets.  Sheet music versions of the tunes will be provided for you by the end of the day, just in case your ears need the help.  

On Friday, we will be mostly jamming, modulating, singing, dancing, experimenting, sharing, and playing fiddle related instruments.  

One day: $60.00

Two days: $110.00 ($55 per day)

Three days: $150.00 fee for 3 days. ($50 per day)
