Max Rainwater: Fiddle, Mandolin, Vocals


 


Max Rainwater started fiddling at age six, when his Suzuki instructor taught him Drowsy Maggie, Mason's Apron, and a handful of other tunes. After finishing third in
his first fiddle contest, at age ten, he was hooked! He went on to win many
contests, all over New England . In 2006, Max won the Junior Division of the
40th Annual Northeast Regional Old-Time Fiddler's Contest, in Barre , VT , and
was named the Northeast Regional Junior Champion by the National Old-Time
Fiddler's Association. He was also the recipient of the Clem Myers Award at
that time. Most recently, in 2008, Max took second place in the Championship
Division in the New England Fiddle Contest. Max attends fiddle camps every
summer, where he has opportunities to take lessons from and jam with such
fiddle greats as Jay Unger, Bruce Molsky, April Verch, Matt Glaser, and Mark
O'Connor. Max also plays classical violin. He studies with Liz Fay, at the
Hartt School , and plays in the Connecticut Youth Symphony. He participates in
All-State and Regional Music Festivals as well, and was the concertmaster of
the Eastern Connecticut Regional High School Orchestra in 2008. Max goes to
Windham High School , where he writes for the school paper, plays on the golf
team, and acts in drama club productions. He also enjoys playing guitar and
mandolin, and, much to his parents' chagrin, riding his BMX bike.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.

 

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.

 

Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
