Fiddle Has Landed! I am the proud owner of a new Columbia-style KC Fiddle! Thank you to my friends and benefactors! bit.ly/JimmyFiddle See More

THE STORY:

During our Stop the #FERCus actions in DC with beyondextremeenergy.org, there were many thefts, one of which was a break-in of my car that resulted in the theft of my fiddle (case, bows, and all the bells & whistles).  

A police report has been filed, but there is very little chance of it being reclaimed.  

This is an article published in the Washington Post regarding this incident: 
The ballad of the fiddle that traveled 3,000 miles — and then was stolen by John Kelly

In wishing to continue my service for the common good as a mobile organizer and an ecological justice intersectional activist, I hope to raise funds to help with restoring the fiddledom and ongoing travel costs that are part of the work I do with outreach to communities throughout the country.

I remember the time you were playing in that beautiful church on the PIpeline Pilgrimage. I'm hoping you'll be playing again soon! 3 years ago

Jimmy, thank you for all of the incredible and beautiful music you played on the March. It was wonderful to include that in my article for Buzzsaw, and then actually hear it myself when I got on the March. I so deeply appreciate your positive outlook after your fiddle was stolen, and you deserve getting it replaced more than anyone I know. Much love and well wishes in your travels, music-creation, and life artistry. 3 years ago

The best corporate media story to come out of the BXE protests -- worth more than the $2,500 you are trying to raise in column inches. 3 years ago
