First it was just the river run, but as it expanded, there were jam sessions, fiddle workshops, then a dandy concert,
a pancake breakfast where the fiddlers play for the cooks, an old time dance, a lovely church service, and we also started a wonderful week long
fiddle camp to teach kids and grownups how to play the fiddle! Over 80 graduated last year from the fiddle camp.
Now we need a new fiddle camp to take the overflow students!
Glad you like New Brunswick! Life doesn't get much better than here! Bill Miller
