Hoppin' John Old-Time Fiddlers' Convention 2018

hoppin-john-2018-image-1.pngWe are getting ready to go to our favorite festival, the Hoppin' John Old-Time and Bluegrass Fiddlers' Convention (Sept. 13-16, 2018) in Silk Hope, North Carolina. As always, we will be taking a whole bunch of instruments and accessories to sell, including a recently-completed Violoncello da Spalla - actually, it is already spoken for and will be shipped to the U.K. as soon as the festival is over. Of course, we have, lots of fiddles (some really superb vintage instruments included!), tenor and baritone violas and bows. We even have a really sweet violin-sized 4x5 viola d'amore - that's 4 playable strings and 5 sympathetic strings. You would not believe the droning overtones that this warm-sounding fiddle puts out. As per usual, we are also selling some unique instruments that we do not normally have to sell via our online store, including a super-cool 19th Century guitar replica, a nice tenor banjo set up for Irish traditional, an Oscar Schmidt banjolele (banjo uke) and a really nice restored vintage Neapolitan (bowl-back or "tater bug") mandolin with its original case.

We offer special festival pricing on everything we bring with us to sell at Hoppin' John. We are offering the same pricing on this extensive collection of instruments via this store (Don Rickert Musician Shop). We would really appreciate it if you took a look at what we have to offer.
