Last Sunday’s jam we had not one but two “generation Ys” help us learn the Eastern European tunes. Martin Vandenven and his son Ari demonstrated the Bulgarian and Macedonian tunes, along with Anne and her daughter Gabe – who not only fiddled but also played a hand drum to keep our rhythm in check.
Martin will perform on World Fiddle Day as part of the house band and Ari is behind our wonderful arrangement of the beautiful tune Gankino. Thanks to all for coming out, only 2 more practise sessions to go. Next one up: May 5, 7 – 9 over to the Scandinavian tunes
