Fiddle Workshop with Rosie Newton @ 4pm - Open to students of all skill levels, this Old-Time fiddle workshop will focus on listening to and learning tunes by ear. We will also talk about the nuts and bolts of technique, including bowings and rhythms typically found in this kind of music. We'll learn a few standard tunes that you can share with your friends and help you feel confident in joining any old-time jam!
Banjo Workshop with Richie @ 5pm - In this clawhammer banjo workshop Richie will discuss the basic technique that sets this style of banjo apart from others. Whether you're a beginner or have been playing for years, we hope to strengthen your foundation by picking apart basic tunes and discussing their components. We will also include tips on playing with a fiddle player, and learning tunes by ear.
Richie Stearns and Rosie Newton return for their second Southern Pacific Session! If you saw them last year, you know just how special their unique styling of banjo and fiddle is. Bring a friend who missed them last time and spread the love!
