Matt Brown Fiddle Workshop: Polishing the Gems * Susquehanna Folk (SFMS)
Fiddle Workshop: "Polishing the Gems"
Matt Brown will teach his version of two tunes from the standard fiddle repertoire -- tunes that often get neglected once fiddlers pass through the "beginning" phase. Intermediate level: participants should have a basic familiarity with the instrument and be willing to learn by ear. Bring your fiddle!
Matt Brown is an innovative fiddler, an intricate banjo player, a propulsive guitar player, and a moving singer. His music ranges from sprightly square dance tunes to haunting banjo pieces, to songs from the blues to traditional ballads. Many of his influences come from commercial recordings of the 1920's and 1930's. The rest come from field recordings made by collectors such as Alan Lomax, John Cohen and Mike Seeger, or from friendships with older musicians.
