Drive From Your Fiddle Bow: Easy Melodies, Challenging Bowing

This workshop will focus on rhythm and groove from advanced bowing patterns found in Midwestern and Southeastern American traditional fiddle music. We will identify and discuss tools and control that the bow has on a fiddler’s overall sound, and work on new techniques through short exercises and related traditional repertoire. The course will feature tunes with simple left hand fingerings, aided by cross tunings, so that students can concentrate on the new techniques and rhythms in the right arm.

This unique workshop is a special opportunity, the day before instructor Laurel Premo will be playing a show at the folk school with Red Tail Ring: https://duluthfolkschool.com/events/music-red-tail-ring/
