Drive From Your Fiddle Bow
“Drive From Your Fiddle Bow: Easy Melodies, Challenging Bowing” is a workshop that focuses on rhythm and groove from advanced bowing patterns found in Midwestern and Southeastern American traditional fiddle music. The curriculum includes identifying and discussing 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 features tunes with simple left hand fingerings, aided by cross tuning, so that students can concentrate on the new techniques and rhythms in the right arm.
The day before the workshop, instructor Laurel Premo plays a show at the folk school with Red Tail Ring.
