Bruce Molsky Workshop
Old Time Fiddle
Well take a fun and intense hands-on approach in Bruces old time fiddle workshop. Tunes are taught a phrase at a time, first melody, then bowing, and then piecing things together. We'll dig into old-time music's unique phrasing, rhythm and syncopation, intonation, etc. The tune is the vehicle, so mostly we'll be playing! If enough folks are interested, we can also spend some time working on singing with the fiddle.
Bring a recorder or smartphone. Since developing ear training skills is one of the workshop goals, written music will not be provided.
Suggested experience level: If you have at least a small repertoire of tunes and feel reasonably comfortable on the fiddle, then you'll be fine.
