Henry Barnes and Aaron Jonah Lewis will be teaching a workshop focusing on the fiddle and banjo as a duet AND in the context of a band.

Henry Barnes is an Ohio native who has been playing the fiddle for 22 years. He has recorded with legendary old-time musician Dan Gellert. After starting with the Suzuki method, he was pushed by his father towards country music but he was captured by a love for Old-Time music after meeting West Virginia fiddler Bobby Taylor. Since then Henry has won contests in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Virginia. He recently won the Ed Haley Memorial Contest and the Elmer Rich Memorial Contest, placed 2nd in the Traditional Division at the Grand Masters Fiddle Championship, and placed in the top 5 at the Clifftop and Galax contests. Henry teaches lessons and workshops in central Ohio that are focused around personal connections and regional styles in Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky.

Aaron Jonah Lewis is a multi-instrumentalist, performer and educator. He has won awards at the Clifftop Appalachian String Band Festival, including First Place Neotraditional Band in 2008 and 2015, and at the Galax Old Fiddlers Convention, including First Place Bluegrass Fiddle in 2007, and he has performed at major festivals from the US to the UK and from Italy to Finland.

Lewis has taught workshops at the the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow and at the English Folk Dance and Song Society in London. He also plays and teaches banjo, mandolin, guitar, and bass and is currently based in Detroit.

Innovative musicians/dancers with a quirky neo-trad soul, Oakland, California-based Evie Ladin & Keith Terry throw down original folk songs and deep interpretations of old songs, with the kinetic thrill of percussive dance. Ladin sings and plays infectious clawhammer banjo, while Terry is a master percussionist. It was Appalachian string band music pared to the absolute minimum of accompaniment, but packed with an orchestras worth of rhythm.  Music City Roots, Nashville

Sausage Grinder, Los Angeles classic old-time and country blues string band, combines the traditional sounds of fiddle and banjo breakdowns with the low-down sound of country blues, topped off with a touch of ragtime and hillbilly jazz. The versatile acoustic ensemble features fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, jug, washboard, and a few odds and ends.

Echo Mountain is an old-time string band based out of Los Angeles.Together they play square dances and farmers markets in the LA area and have been featured performers at the Watkins Family Hour. The collective vision of Echo Mountain is to build a repertoire that reflects the whole spectrum of the old-time tradition, playing each fiddle tune and mountain ballad with new energy while remaining true to traditional style and form.

King’s Lament–Old-Time Fiddle Duets

“There’s twin fiddling, and then there’s David Bragger and Susan Platz. Their music really reaches into that space where two instruments become one and draws you right in with it. King’s Lament is one of the most sonorous and rhythmically locked-in sets of tunes you’ll hear, and spans across familiar and unfamiliar old-time terrain. Another really great recording from David’s unique Tiki Parlour collection.” –Bruce Molsky
