Old Time Fiddle with Steve Sammy Lind (Foghorn, Dirk Powell Band)
San Francisco Bluegrass & Old-Time Festival Workshop


Steve Sammy Lind will host an old-time fiddle instructional workshop for intermediate to advanced fiddle players. The workshop will consist of Sammy teaching tunes by ear, breaking them down phrase by phrase, emphasizing bowing. The rhythms of old time fiddling can be very complex, so it is very important to break down tunes phrase by phrase to capture the desired sound. Alternate tunings will also be explored during the session. Repertoire will include fiddle tunes from Northern Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Missouri and Southern Illinois.
Sammy has toured the world playing old-time music with his bandmates from the Foghorn Stringband, as well as with Dirk
Powell and Riley Baugus. He has collaborated with Irish fiddle great Kevin Burke for a concert series out on the Oregon Coast.


Steve Sammy Lind has had many opportunities to teach old-time fiddle workshops at festivals and schools, and gives two workshops a week in his home in Portland, Ore., when hes not on the road. More on Sammy at myspace.com/foghornduo.
