The Celtic Classic Fiddle Workshop
Sunday, September 28th- 12:00
The Celtic Classic will be offering a FREE fiddle workshop taught by some of the judges of the Fiddle Contest. This workshop is open to all the fiddle contestants of the previous day’s competition plus any violin or fiddle player who would like to participate. The hour-long workshop will begin with some general feedback about the previous day’s contest performances, move on to some specifics about how to turn an ordinary tune into something memorable with the appropriate treatment of bowing, phrasing and ornamentation, and then move on to teaching a new tune or two both by ear and with written music.
D’Arcy Furniss of the Ontario-based Glengarry Bhoys will lead the workshop instruction. Bring your instrument and a recording device such as your phone. Please join us for this insightful sojourn into traditional Celtic Fiddling!
Please call 610-868-9599 to reserve your space at the workshop.
