Bluegrass workshop and what else? Give me feedback
Tuesday, August 14, 2012 @1:00:45 PM
As part of the Sunday Sessions for continuing fiddlers (starting Sept. 16), we will include two specialty workshops with fiddlers "outstanding in their field." This past spring Sunday Sessions featured Joe Dady (Irish fiddle), Jim Kimball (contra-dance fiddle) and Sue Bechler (Cajun fiddle).
In October and November, 2012, there will be a bluegrass fiddle workshop and one as yet unselected workshop.
I need input to help make the decision. Would you active fiddlers come out to a Klezmer fiddle workshop (I certainly would!)? How about Scandavian or gypsy fiddle style workshops?
Please post your ideas and this will help inform the final decision.

If I lived close enough I would be at that bluegrass workshop. The gypsy workshop sounds like fun.

Other fiddle workshops could be Cape Breton, Quebecois, Eastern European, jazz.....all of you out there may know of something that I have missed to date.

Well there's also...
- Missouri contest style
- Texas contest style
- Westen Swing
- Midwestern (Chirps Smith)
to name a few. But given your location and probably some budget limitations that prevent your importing someone from far away, I'd guess you'd want to do Cape Breton, Quebecois, or Scottish - assuming there's a Scottish fiddle club somewhere around? Maybe even Cape Breton's too far away...

Cool! I appreciate the ideas. Yeah, there is a Scottish fiddle club nearby - but I can't get the leaders to "lead" a workshop.

That's unusual. Usually those clubs are quite interested in gaining new members....
