Who we are

FOR BOOKINGS CONTACT BERNIE SCHREIBER 860 456-9913.

The Quiet Corner Fiddlers is an informal group of eastern Connecticut amateur fiddlers, with a guitar and a bass.  For more info see our Facebook page.   We get together weekly at various locations in the evening to have fun playing traditional fiddle music, and to improve our fiddling skills.  We mostly play reels, jigs, and waltzes, but we also play rags and Finnish and Klezmer tunes.  We've been doing this since June 2005, and usually about a dozen musicians show up.  At our sessions we go around the group, everyone in turn picking the next tune we play.  Usually, the person picking a tune will play it as a solo first, then everyone joins in.  We occasionally play out at various public performances.  Every second Tuesday we hold our sessions at local restaurants such as Dog Lane Café, Midway Restaurant, Lefty's Landing, Hank's Restaurant, The Lucky Frog, and others.  To play with us, just show up with your fiddle.  For our event schedule, go to our Facebook page.
