OLD TIME FIDDLE WORKSHOP FOR ALL LEVELS

Monday, February 13th 6:30-7:30pm $15 | Amy Alvey of Hoot and Holler

No registration is required!

In this workshop students will learn a tune or two (if time permits) by ear. First we'll focus on the basic melody, then focus on fundamental bowings and phrasing for achieving the danceable rhythm characteristic of old-time Appalachian music. Depending on the skill level and interest of the class, we can focus on an old chestnut like Ed Haley's "Ida Red" or a lesser-known tune made obscure by its crooked nature or tuning.
