I'll be returning as an instructor to The Swannanoa Gathering in 2018, but this time for Fiddle Week (which will be concurrent with Mando and Banjo Week), July 29-Aug. 3, 2018. I'm really excited to be part of this week! Coordinator Julia Weatherford has put together a fantastic lineup of instructors, including Bluegrass legend Byron Berline, the versatile, beyond-classical fiddlers Darol Anger, Jeremy Kittel, Evan Price and John Mailander, cajun master David Greely, Canadian fiddler extraordinaire April Verch, old-time fiddlers Kilby Spencer and yours truly, gypsy jazz guitarist Greg Ruby, Irish fiddling great Liz Knowles and Brazilian choro fiddler Andrew Finn Magill, with Ethan Jodziewicz on bass and Nora Garver teaching beginners. And more to be announced! Full info will be posted online in March
By the way, I'll be teaching both Intermediate and Advanced levels, with a focus on the fiddle music of Kentucky.
Classes fill up fast, and pre-registration is highly recommended! See info at The Swannanoa Gathering website.
I'll be posting more about this later...
