Contact me to arrange participation in your upcoming folk music festival, school celebration or contra dance. I am available to play for your fair or assembly, or let me help to arrange a school contra dance evening! Over 25 years experience playing for contra dances allows me many musician and caller connections!
Need a violin / fiddling clinician for your upcoming festival? I offer classes for violinists who want to experience the fun of fiddling. The classes are fast-paced and highly participatory! We'll explore well beyond fiddle tunes to improvisation, practice issues and motivational strategies.
Based on the models of similar groups in the Boston area and New Hampshire, this group meets on the first Thursday of every month. The group is non-instructional, except for demonstrating the tunes.
Participants will have the opportunity to sit in with a string orchestra playing mostly New England Contra Dance tunes; we aim to play each year at the Worcester Contra Dance (Valentine's Day weekend), or for other community dances throughout New England. Guest musicians from the area will be invited to play along in the group. Registration for this group includes all sheet music. Interested players should contact Myra for an audition.
