The Jink Practice Competition - MC'd by Ralph Gordon - feedback provided by members of the Jink faculty
A long-time Jink tradition, this event is a chance for you to feel what it’s like to participate in a traditional Scottish Air + MSR performance. At Jink, this is a welcoming, friendly, supportive event where new folks can try out the feel of a brand new MSR, and growing/experienced Scottish fiddlers can hone their performance skills. Each performer will play part or all of an Air + MSR program, and receive constructive, written feedback from our panel of faculty “judges.” No points, no prizes, no comparisons - just a chance for folks to play for each other and improve their traditional Scottish-style performance skills.
NOTE: Sign-up in advance is required. If you didn’t pre-register for the competition on your Registration Form but would now like to do so, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line COMPETITION to check if a spot is available. The number of ‘competitors’ may have to be limited.
Friday 8/6, 8:15 - 9:15 p.m. [EDT]
