Fiddling in Many Styles

I am a fiddler in Ithaca, New York, specializing in the traditional dance music of Europe and North America. I also play Hardanger fiddle and nyckelharpa.

What's New?

I'm largely (though not fully) recovered from Lyme disease and back to full-time music work. I had a fantastic summer trip to Scandinavia; here’s my photo diary. I’ve recorded for my next two CDs with Mattias Hammarsten, Gerd Stenlid, Stefhan Ohlström and Bob Mills, and have some solo hardingfele (Hardanger fiddle) recording left to do. Look for the finished products later in 2016.

Here's my Performance and workshop schedule, most around Ithaca in central New York State. I run an occasional dance series which alternates between Scandinavian and French Bal Folk. You can study fiddle with me privately or at several camps and weekends.

The tunebooks of my Scandinavian Fiddle Tradition series are still a year or more from publication. If you are longing for sheet music for a tune or two from the first 3 CDs of the series, just contact me and I will send it to you.
