Old-Time Fiddle Masterclass and Tune Workshop by Rachel Eddy. $35. Followed by a tune workshop - take both for $55.
This is an Intermediate / Advanced workshop. We will focus primarily on how to help your fiddling sound oldtimey and more driving. We will be geared toward learning how to use bow pulses, bowing phrases, and note combinations to give fiddle tunes a shape. In learning these things we will also explore ways to be more consistent players, and how important that is in terms of leadership in jams. This will not be a repertoire heavy class, but rather using a tune or two that utilize certain helpful techniques, and really working hard to know them before you leave. There will be lots of playing time, as fingers on strings is the best way to take home what you learn!
Rachel is known for her bedrock presence up and down the expanse of Appalachia and overseas as a master of oldtime fiddle and banjo. Her solo performances and collaborative recordings showcase songs of life and tradition and protest.
