Fiddle Workshop -- How to Get that Old-Time Sound with EARL WHITE
This hour and a half workshop will focus on learning tunes with emphasis on bowing technique and execution of the tune. We will also explore differs tuning to get that oldtime sound.

Earl White has been a prominent figure in the old-time music and dance community for more than 30 years. An original and founding member of the famed Greengrass Cloggers, he has danced to many of the fiddlin legends, including Tommy Jarrell, the Highwoods Stringband, Plankroad Stringband, The Red Clay Ramblers, and the Hot Mud Family, to name a few. Earl White received his first fiddle in 1974 and is one of few Black Americans reviving the music that was once an important part of rural black communities and life on plantations in the American southeast. Earl is known for his extensive repertoire of unusual tunes, and his driving, energetic, heartfelt style. Ten years new to the west coast, Earl will be joined by Adrienne Davis (guitar), Mark Olitsky (banjo) from Cleveland, Ohio and Mark Bohn, the "Bass Doctor" as the "Earl White Stringband".
