BOTMC- Southern Appalachian Fiddle Evolution w/Paul Brown

Paul Brown

Sunday, September 30th

1:00 pm (event ends at 2:30 pm)

$25

  • Understand some major fiddle styles of the southern Appalachians, and make yourself a better old-time fiddler. We’ll try a lilting Galax, Virginia-area tune, a self-accompanying Round Peak, North Carolina tune, and a slightly more modern interpretation of a classic tune from Benny Jarrell, Benton Flippen, or Robert Sykes (we’ll decide who on the fly). Find out why Appalachian fiddling is so strongly recognizable, understand how it’s evolved, and put that knowledge to use in your own playing — whatever your personal style or approach. This intermediate-advanced workshop lets you take advantage of Paul's years of learning directly from three generations of regional fiddlers. You should arrive with some facility on the fiddle, the ability to tune, and a willingness to learn by ear, through demonstration and experimentation. Bring a recording device if you wish. Feel free to ask questions and to comment, and plan on having fun!
