We are excited to invite you to the 10th Annual Fiddle Fest, hosted in conjunction with the Gilbert Town Fiddlers and sponsored by Milano Music! Fiddle Fest is a day for string players of any age, both students and teachers, to explore different fiddling traditions. All ability levels and bowed string instruments (violin, viola, cello, and bass!) are welcome. It will be a packed day of fun tunes, new techniques, grooving, and performances from students and professionals!
Registration Fee: $35 for students (includes t-shirt and lunch). Register by February 13th to guarantee your shirt size!
While the event is geared towards student-aged musicians, teachers are also welcome to participate and/or observe classes throughout the day! ASTA members can attend for free; non-ASTA teachers can attend for $15.
We are especially excited to share that this year’s guest instructor is fiddler and educator Lauren Rioux from Maine. With her strong background in music education, Lauren is in-demand as a teacher at fiddle camps and music festivals around the country. In addition to her bustling private studio, she has also developed and created a highly popular online fiddling curriculum, Jam With Lauren. After her incredible work as a guest artist at Fiddle Fest 2012, we are so excited to bring Lauren back to our community!
