Master Scottish Fiddler Alasdair Fraser, who has just been inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame, has inspired and encouraged countless aspiring and accomplished musicians through his award-winning recordings, performances and music camps. Alasdair will lead a special one-day community music-making workshop for all string players (fiddle, viola, cello and bass) based on the fiddle music of Scotland and beyond. Woodwinds, guitars, harps and keyboards are also welcome.
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; enthusiasts of all levels are welcome to attend and encouraged to participate at their level of ability. This workshop is for all ages; children should be accompanied by a supervising adult.
