North Shore Fiddle Workshop with Charlie Walden
Saturday, May 9, 3:00-4:30 pm
William Harris Lee & Co.
1138 Central Avenue, Wilmette
The monthly workshops are typically on the first Saturday of the month from 3:00 to 4:30 pm. Fee for attendance is $20 per session.
At each workshop Charlie Walden, master traditional fiddler and three-time Illinois champion, will present at least two of the old fiddle tunes, taught by ear in the traditional way (notation will be provided at the end of the session). There also will be time to play the tunes together, getting them up to tempo and concentrating on the right bowing and rhythmic accent.
The workshops are geared to players at an intermediate skill level on the violin/fiddle. Ages 8 to 100 may participate. No prior experience playing traditional music is required. Playing these old ditties can be a fun way to shake the dust of your instrument if you haven't played in awhile. Contact Mr. Walden if you have questions about the difficulty level of the sessions.
Each workshop is limited to 12 seats so advance registration is encouraged. To reserve a seat, please register and pay in advance. For more information: sign up at http://www.charliewalden.com/Sessions.htm, email possum.walden@gmail.com or call (847) 800-1647.
Please note on your calendar the upcoming date below.
You can register up three weeks in advance.
