Fiddling in Many StylesI 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?Lyme disease is unfortunately still limiting how much music work I can do these days. I improved a lot in 2015 and had a fantastic summer trip to Scandinavia; here’s my photo diary. I recorded a lot of lovely tracks for my next two CDs (#4 & 5 of the Scandinavian Fiddle Tradition series) with Mattias Hammarsten, Gerd Stenlid, Stefhan Ohlström and Bob Mills, and have some solo hardingfele (Hardanger fiddle) recording left to do. The finished products will be delayed until the Lyme improves again.
My Performance and workshop schedule, most around Ithaca in central New York State, will resume when I’m healthier. I was running an occasional dance series which alternated between Scandinavian and French Bal Folk and hope to resume that in the future. You can still study fiddle, nyckelharpa and Hardanger Fiddle with me privately.
The tunebooks of my Scandinavian Fiddle Tradition series are still a long way from publication, again delayed by Lyme. 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.
