$10 General Admission

Master fiddler Valerie Ryals will perform a variety of Texas style fiddle tunes, Western swing and more at Texas Folklifes final show of the 2016 Fall House Concert Series.  Join us for an evening of Texas fiddle music with Valerie Ryals, a 2016 participating Master Artist in Texas Folklifes Apprenticeship Program and a member of the Texas Fiddlers Hall of Fame.

About Valerie Ryals:

Valerie was a participating Master Artist in Texas Folklife's 2016 Apprenticeship in the Folk & Traditional Arts Program.  She has been an instructor with the Texas Commission of the Arts, at both Johnny Gimbles and Randy Elmores fiddle camps, the DFW WOW Suzuki Violin Institute and Texas Christian Universitys Fiddle Workshops.  Ryals was the first woman to serve on the board of the Texas Old Time Fiddlers Association, and performed for a number of years as a Texas Folklife master artist and participant in the Community Residency Program. In 2009, she became the first  and so far only  female fiddler inducted into the Texas Fiddlers Hall of Fame.

Ryals school in Burleson, where she has taught a variety of young state Texas fiddle champions, is another lasting legacy of the woman described in her Texas Fiddlers Hall of Fame biography as a Lone Star treasure.
