Hello. I'm a beginning fiddler looking for a club or group of fiddlers to join in occasional share and practice sessions in the San Francisco Bay area.

You might try asking at the SanFrancisco Folk Song Society on Haight St, every other Fri there's a get together there. Barry

Thanks for the tip. I'll check it out. Do you know about anything in the East Bay?

Thanks, Sue

Try a bar called the Starry Plough in Berkley, not to confused with the Star & Plough in the city, they both have sessions, have no idea what nights. These I would say wouldn't be for beginners but they'd be a good resource. Barry

I once sat in at session at the plough and the stars in the richmond district. I haven't been up there in over a year, though.

The SFFMC maintains a webpage and mailing list. Eric Hoffman has been running slow jams at his home and posts them to that list. His e-mail is ErikThor@aol.com.
Kapish 'slow jam'? It is a gathering where tunes are requested and then played slooooww so you can learn them and is usually attended by a number of different instruments, including your namesake and fiddles. There is also EB pickin and singin still, I think. At any rate, posting to that list ought to find you what you want.
To sub to that list, e to "harmony-request@idiom.com" and say 'subscribe' in the body of the copy
or "http://www.idiom.com/harmony" for the webpage
Blessings,
Barbara
