Workshop Description:
Old-Time Fiddle & Double Fiddle with Bowing
Saturday July 25, 6:00-7:30 EDT

David and Susan are excited to present their favorite intensive fiddle workshop. Students will be learning an old-time fiddle tune in great depth, broken down phrase-by-phrase. And, yes, all of the bowing will be clearly demonstrated and taught in this workshop. It’s David and Susan’s specialty since old-time fiddling is almost entirely about the bowing! They will also be teaching harmony parts that emphasize fundamental chords, bowing rhythms and seconding techniques. Additionally, these techniques will be clearly taught independently of a particular tune, so fiddlers can apply them to any tune, anywhere.
