We have added a new photo album....A Century of Fiddling in New England. This is a 4 page article prepared by our club archivist Matt McConeghy. It is an interesting story about the people and the tunes of the our club. Matt prepared it to take to Fiddle Hell Nov 5, 2011 in Massachusetts where he will be leading a jam session on Rhode Island fiddling. Take a look at it by clicking on Photo Gallery to the left.
At present the only way we can get this on the website is with jpg files, so we apologize for the small size of the print.

Doris Moon, Frank's widow, has given the club over 2 boxes of archives from the club. The collection includes membership applications as far back as 1930. meeting minutes from the 1930s, photographs going back to 1912, copies of photographs going back to what appears to be the 19th century, and a wealth of newspaper articles about the club and fiddlers from our area. At the June meeting a Historical Committee, with Matt McConneghy as chairman was appointed to organize and evaluate the material, A new ablum, Historical Photographs, has been set up in our website Photo Gallery. Two photographs from the collection can be seen there. One is a photograph of the "Fiddlers Club" (predecesor of the Old Fidders' Culb of Rhode Island) taken at the annual renion in Harrisville RI, 6 October, 1912. The other is the Old Fiddlers' Club of Rhode Island outing at Perryville Grange Hall, 19 August 1934. In this one a young Frank Moon appears at the right of the 2nd row.
