This fiddle-focused group explores elements of Celtic, American, and French-Canadian fiddling, and more! From bowing patterns to double stops to ornamentation, participants learn a variety of fiddling techniques that will take their fiddle playing to the next level. Weaving together harmonies, backup chords, bass notes, and melody, the ensemble will create orchestral fiddle arrangements of tunes.

The String Band Symposium is an interactive Zoom class that links repertoire from several folk and roots music traditions, exercises and ideas to develop technique, and a survey of a number of forms and sounds that make up several string band traditions, with a special focus on how they have evolved and thrived in New England.This participatory class will run every other week on Wednesday evenings, from 5:30-6:30, starting on September 30. It is open to all string players, but geared primarily towards guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo, and ukulele. Each lesson focuses on a single topic (such as the pentatonic scale, or jig rhythms), and provides exercises and tunes/accompaniments to which the concept can be applied. Some music theory will be presented, and it will be geared towards making theory useful in a traditional music context. The Zoom chat format allows for interactive questions and discussion, and lessons will be recorded and archived for use by registered students. Pdfs will also be provided.
