This class will meet in-person at Louisville Folk School.
Join us for an exploration of Kentucky’s rich fiddle traditions. Covering obscure and common tunes, we will become versed in bowing patterns, ornamentation, and melodic variation from source musicians across the commonwealth.
This class is appropriate for intermediate-advanced players who are comfortable learning tunes quickly. The listening skills of the student must be well developed, as we will be referencing field recordings and old commercial recordings to understand and evoke the archaic sound of Kentucky’s mountain music masters.
