The Quiet Corner Fiddlers to Host 10th Anniversary Show, Benefiting Windham Theatre GuildThe Quiet Corner Fiddlers to Host 10th Anniversary Show, Benefiting Windham Theatre Guild
by BWW News Desk (Connecticut)

(4/20/2015) - The Quiet Corner Fiddlers began in 2005 when five musicians gathered at the home of Chuck and Noreen Morgan of Willimantic for a session of playing fiddle tunes. Everyone had so much fun that they decided to do it every Tuesday evening. Word quickly spread to other musicians and after a substantial number of fiddlers had joined, they decided to name the group Quiet Corner Fiddlers. The group started playing every 2nd Tuesday of the month at a local restaurant in Willimantic, a practice that continued until the restaurant closed several years ago. During this time other venues began booking QCF to play for them: Scotland Farm Days, Coventry Haunted Happenings, Third Thursday in Willimantic, Civil War Re-enactments at Woodstock's Roseland Cottage, Soroptomist events in Lebanon, the Rhythm on the Rails series at the Train Museum in Willimantic, the opening of an art show at ECSU, the Coventry Regional Farmers Market, and others. The fiddlers still play out 2nd Tuesdays of each month, at local restaurants throughout northeast Connecticut.
