Advanced Fiddle Workshop with Bruce Molsky
On Friday, from 3-5pm, Bruce will lead participants through some old time tunes in different regional styles. The tunes will be our vehicles for digging into the important elements: bowing, double stops, ornamentation, intonation. This is a limited workshop of only 20 participants, and is not included in the Friday or full weekend pass. Make your reservation soon! Tickets are $35, made payable by Venmo or PayPal to Rachael Penn.
