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
I'm gearing up for 2 fun fiddle weekends, Fiddle Hell in Westport MA in November, and Falling Waters in Ithaca NY in January 2015.
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.
