Fiddle Camp Concerts Feature World Class Talent What does a father and son from Kfar Saba (Israel), two middle-age brothers from Alberta (Canada) and a banjo enthusiast from Oxfordshire (England) have in common? They’ll all be in town – along with some ninety other folks from across the U.S. – to participate next month in the fourth annual Julian Family Fiddle Camp! The Julian Family Fiddle Camp’s reputation and draw has gone international, with increasing numbers coming each year to learn and play with some of the best traditional acoustic string instrument musicians found anywhere today. Per Avery Ellisman, the Founder and Producer of the Camp, “We’ve worked extremely hard to identify and bring the best instructors to teach and perform at the Camp, and word about the quality of the instruction, beautiful environment, and warm community reception has clearly been spread far and wide.” The Julian Family Fiddle Camp offers instruction for those who play the fiddle, mandolin, old-time banjo, guitar and upright bass, and provides classes and workshops in traditional Appalachian flatfoot and buck dancing. It not only draws people of all ages from afar, it has also earned the interest and participation of increasing numbers of locals as well. Maril Parker, a Julian resident for over twenty two years, has attended the Camp since its inception and notes that “not only is the Camp’s instruction world-class, the evening concerts are simply unbelievable. It’s thrilling to have such musical luminaries teaching at a music camp here in Julian, and fantastic that the Camp instructors put on performances all can attend.” As for the performances, they’re held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights (April 10th, 11th and 12th) at Camp Cedar Glen, with a different artist headlining each concert. Starting on Thursday evening this year’s artists include old-time banjo wizard, • Networking Breakfast • Wednesday, April 16 Poncho Villas 8 All Are Welcome AM continued on page 9 The Julian Backcountry Quilt Trail is ready to begin! Please attend the first community meeting explaining HOW to get involved in the first quilt trail in Southern California and only the third in the state. Join the Julian Backcountry Quilt Trail Committee and the Julian Woman’s Club as they host a Tuesday, April 8 meeting at 6 p.m. at the Julian Branch Library AND a repeat meeting on April 11 at 9 a.m. at the Julian Woman’s Clubhouse. A quilt trail is a driving route through rural areas along which property owners have decorated their businesses, barns, outbuildings or residences with painted wooden quilt squares viewable from the roads. Over 130 quilt trails currently exist in 43 states, with over 3500 decorated structures. The main purpose of any quilt trail is to promote tourism and economic growth in rural areas; however, the trail’s beautiful folk art and grassroots involvement also develop and reflect community pride. Each colorful pattern is selected or designed by the property owner, often revealing historical connections to the land, business or family; thus each trail becomes a unique reflection of the area it covers. The Julian Backcountry Quilt Trail Committee envisions the trail’s driving route as Julian in the center of an imaginary pinwheel, extending outward on state routes through communities at least 25 miles in any direction— Lake Cuyamaca, Descanso, Wynola, Santa Ysabel, Ramona, Warner Springs, Borrego Springs, Shelter Valley. In Julian, Farmers Road to Wynola Road will also be included. Growth will depend on participation and additional routes may be added in the future. The JBQT Committee also encourages homeowners NOT on the designated driving routes to participate. Decorating homes or outbuildings with quilt blocks becomes neighborhood public art and a thematic connection to the quilt trail. Topics to be covered at the community meetings will include the application process, quilt block selection, costs, options and directions for making, painting and installing quilt blocks, deadlines, role of the JBQT Committee, public relations plans, and volunteer opportunities. Two installation phases are planned, for midJune and early September. Come find out what this exciting new project is all about. Tuesday, April 8 at 6 p.m. at the Julian Branch Library located at 1850 Highway 78, next to the High School AND a repeat meeting on Friday, April 11 at 9 a.m. at the Julian Woman’s Club, 2607 C Street. For more information, please contact the library at 760-765-0370.
