WEEKLY TRADITIONAL MUSIC SESSIONS

B - PERF SF-2006New Fiddlefern Country Dancers’ initiatives in 2015 include weekly, open music sessions Tuesday nights, and monthly music, dance and dance calling workshops, in partnership with the Georgian Bay Folk Society.

The new weekly, open, participatory traditional tune sessions start Tuesday, January 13 at 7 p.m. at The Harmony Centre, 890 4th Avenue East, Owen Sound.

They’re for people who enjoy playing dance music, and for those who want to learn the jigs, reels, waltzes, polkas and more, and eventually play the music for dancers. Fiddlefern organizers anticipate a teaching/learning component each week, followed by a social trad tune session to share music.

This should be of interest especially to people who play melody instruments such as fiddle/violin, flute, whistles, pipes, accordion, concertina, banjo, mandolin etc. as well as people pursuing guitar and other instruments more suitable for rhythmic accompaniment.

Interested musicians are encouraged to attend. Contact session organizers Frank Francalanza (519-372-9151dancefranc@hotmail.com) or Will Henry (519-371-9413 willihenry@gmail.com) for more information.
