About the Event
Join us for an introduction to Scottish and Irish fiddle styles, open to intermediate/advanced players. All stringed instruments welcome!
We will learn a tune or two by ear, exploring what defines these styles of playing, as well as their accompaniment. Sheet music will be provided at the conclusion of the workshop as a memory aid. Together, we will create a short arrangement of the tune(s) we play together.
This workshop, open to students ages 13 and up, is one of two workshops being presented by Jocelyn Pettit and Ellen Gira. Participants in this workshop will be invited to perform onstage with Jocelyn and Ellen during their mainstage performance on Sunday, September 25th at 3pm: https://www.blackrockcenter.org/event-details/jocelyn-pettit-ellen-gira
