Fiddling in Many StylesI am a fiddler in Ithaca, New York, specializing in the traditional dance music of Europe and North America. Performance and workshop schedule
What's New?We are gearing up for another Swedish fiddle procession in the Ithaca Festival Parade May 29. Here are sheet music, rehearsal info and audio recordings of the 5 tunes for the 2014 parade. Rosin up your bow, tune your horn, and join us!
My recording of Klarälvdalspolska with Andrew VanNorstrand got used on a Swedish white water kayaking video...a nice combination, though I'd never be brave enough to do what these guys do. It's 7 minutes, and our tune starts halfway through, a chance to see what sort of natural environment may have inspired that lovely tune. Enjoy.
Lyme disease has slowed down my performing and recording but I am still busy teaching privately and at several music camps and weekends, including Ithaca Suzuki Institute and Fiddle Hell Massachusetts in 2014.
Also I am slowly working on my Scandinavian tunebooks, which are still a couple years from publication. If you are longing for sheet music for a tune or two on my 3 latest CDs, just contact me and I will send it to you.
Waltz, Polka, Schottische, Hambo, Mazurka, the 3rd CD in the Scandinavian Fiddle Tradition series, is now available.
