the life and tunes oF ray schloeffel

Original member of Fiddlers Feast Ray Schloeffel, created beautiful music in spite of his less than ideal existence.

"Ray inspired us all. His wonderful antics, wicked sense of humour and wonderful musicality left us no doubt as to why he wanted to play music"

This book, with over 80 original tunes and settings is full of photos, anecdotes and brings together the threads of the life of this giant of Australian fiddling. Now the subject of Radio National Program "Into the Music"

For more on Ray's life or if you wish to contribute to his legacy go to: Ray Schloeffel Facebook Page

Fiddlers Feast is a deliciously extravagant smorgasboard of Australian music. Described as "a powerhouse of Australian Celtic music that flies down bush tracks, over blue mountains and zips down the city highways"; "Fiddlers Feast tears through a typically bizarre and eclectic mix of jazz, folk, gypsy, country and rock"; "Rollicking fun, with plenty of fiddles, and a tight rhythm section playing with precision and power".
