Irish Fiddle Tunes Workshops
The Old Avoca Schoolhouse in Avoca, Nebraska will be streaming an Irish Fiddle Tunes Workshop for folks who play violin/fiddle, viola, cello, bass, mandolin, soprano recorder, and alto recorder. The workshops will be on Saturday, March 12, from 2:30 PM to 3:30 PM (CT) and Tuesday, March 15, from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM (CT).
During these workshops we will play and discuss tunes from the Greenblatt & Seay publication, “Irish Fiddle Tunes for Two”. Different tunes will be played at each session. A treble clef version of the sheet music for the tunes being played will be displayed on Zoom's screen during the workshop. The cost for each workshop is $10.00. The cost of each optional book is $15.00 (includes shipping if ordered with workshop registration).

“Irish Fiddle Tunes is the kind of collection that should be owned by friends who want to play together because they enjoy the experience or want to include some of the pieces on a recital.”

“Greenblatt’s bowings are well-organized...The harmony parts are varied, from twinning to rhythmic comping to more chordal ideas. Greenblatt has given much attention to detail in this volume.”
