Welcome to my Patreon!
First of all, thank you for being here! My name is David Pascoe. I am a fiddler, mandolinist, guitarist, singer, and wordsmith with a penchant for songwriting. Music moves me, and sometimes I can't help but pick up some strings and move it right back. If you enjoy the taste of good words or the sound of musical madness, then you're in the right place.

What is Patreon?
Simply put, Patreon is an online platform that allows people to support artists through monthly subscriptions. Through that support, artists are empowered to do their thing, do more of it, and do it for the people who want it!

So, what's my thing?
My thing is MUSIC. All of it, in all shapes and sizes. Why? Because music has the power to teach us how to listen, to show us how to feel, to take an empty room and turn it into a community. It is the language we all speak.

Some of you already know that I love music, but you may not all know that my relationship to music has recently been a challenging one. Two years ago, I fiddled myself straight into the doctor's office with a left hand that couldn't make a fist. I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, and thoracic outlet syndrome. Little did I know, you can play too much music.

Two years and a lot of introspection later, I am delighted to say that I've developed the healthy tools I need to once again fiddle to my heart's content, albeit with a lasting awareness of my limitations...

Enter Patreon, stage left!
That's where this page comes in. With your support, I can work toward my creative goals without breaking my body or the bank. I can spend more time teaching free lessons and organizing fiddle workshops and less time sitting in the waiting room.

On this page, you can expect to find original fiddle tunes, original songs, funky covers, video lessons, self-care tips & tricks, poetry, photos, and much more. You can also check out my website for upcoming shows and a link to my album.

My Patreon page is my way of offering you the ability to choose what you want to hear. Want more gypsy jazz? Miore bluegrass? More poems about silly things? Become a patron and let's do it all!

Thanks again for coming along for the ride. The doors are always open, so please fasten your seat belts.

... and I'll write it for you. Ever wondered what "Teatime and Top Hats" would sound like on the fiddle? What about "Petri & His Dish" or "The Monkey's Last Banana?"

Well, now you can finally find out.

Already play fiddle or mandolin but are looking to hone your chops? Or maybe you're looking for an excuse to pick up that old guitar?

Please, let me be that excuse.

Join me for hour-long, 1-on-1 lessons! Few things in this world make me happier than handing somebody the map to the musical playground. I've taught for years and highly recommend learning something new to... everybody. Why? 'Cause it teaches you patience, and patience is the bee's knees.

Give me my freedom and I shall give you folk camps!

I recently organized and taught at the first annual Every Folk, a traditional skills and music camp for adults to learn from and celebrate each other. We plan to hold Every Folk on a regular basis, but putting on a camp isn't cheap nor easy!

Check out our website here: www.everyfolk.com

If you like what you see, consider pledging to my Patreon page to help support me in the ongoing creation of camps and events like this year-round.
