LUNCH INCLUDED - Attendees are invited to stay after the workshop for a mighty jam session and a pass-the-hat pizza dinner. Guests welcome. Beer, wine and soda will be available for sale.

Alasdair Fraser, master Scottish Fiddler, who has inspired and encouraged countless aspiring and accomplished musicians, will hold a special one-day workshop for all string players (fiddle, viola, cello and bass) based on the fiddle music of Scotland and beyond. Woodwinds, guitars, and keyboards are also welcome.

The Goal: We will explore playing traditional music in a group, with emphasis on arrangement ideas and the techniques that give traditional music its unique flavor. We will look at the elements of language and dance, and put fiddle tunes together to form a medley of a larger piece of music. Teaching will be geared toward intermediate to advanced musicians, but enthusiasts of all levels are welcome to attend and encouraged to participate at their level of ability.

-Doors will open at 9:30 am for registration and coffee.
