Advanced Old-Time Fiddle with Matt Brown

This class will meet online - an invitation to a recurring Zoom meeting will be included in the orientation email sent upon checkout

Our focus this session will be on learning the fiddle tunes of the legendary Ed Haley. Haley was born in Logan County, WV then moved to Ashland, KY and lived out his life there. We'll explore his life and music through the brilliant new box set Stole From the Throat of a Bird: The Complete Recordings of Ed & Ella Haley. Likely tunes we'll try include "Poplar Bluff," "Half Past Four," and "Dunbar."
In this recurring class, we address specific goals enumerated by the students. Upon achieving these goals, students will be able to lead tunes at jam sessions and play for dances.

You don't have to be a recurring student to join the fun, and we love having fiddlers beam in from all around the world. Future topics of this class will include cross-tuning and the Round Peak style.

Each class meeting will be recorded on Zoom and available to stream on demand.
