$25
sku: BOLICK-WORKSHOP

Study the fiddle tunes of the 1920s and ‘30s with master fiddler Harry Bolick!

 

During this workshop, in addition to basic fiddle techniques, Harry Bolick will teach and discuss fiddle tunes from Mississippi. There is a touch of blues, a hint of ragtime, and an opinionated touch of melody from the legacy of the great fiddlers of the 1920s and ‘30s.

The workshop is for melody players, is 1 hour in length and usually teaches 2 complete tunes. Harry will play the tunes, discuss their history, and any quirks of musical interest. He will then break the tune down into short passages that are taught to the group by ear. Bowings and variations are taught. 

The workshop will be tailored for the attendees. More or specific tunes can be covered.

The tunes taught are drawn from WPA era manuscripts, commercial 78's from the 1920's and 1930's, Library of Congress field recordings of 1939 and later informal field and home recordings or from Harry’s own recordings.
