Workshops on Scandinavian Fiddling

Some of the most beautiful and oldest folk fiddling in the world, usually played in harmony. These stunning melodies have greatly influenced Celtic music traditions and are a wonderful addition to any repertoire. The women of Fru Skagerrak are only in Toronto for 1 day. They are willing and more than able to do workshops Friday afternoon, April 20, from 2 – 5pm and/or Saturday morning, April 21, 10 – 1pm. They will each give you a bit of an overview of trad music from their respective countries – Denmark, Sweden and Norway – and then each teach a simple tune. We need to hear from as many people as possible immediately about whether or not you’re interested in attending either workshop at these times.

Whether or not we do both (or either) depends on the response we get in the next couple of days. We would probably charge $30 for each 3-hour workshop, all of which will go to the performers. The Friday workshop will be at St. Bartholomew’s Church, Dundas and Parliament area. We’re not sure about the Saturday one yet. So let us know! Please e-mail: OR

p.s. Also, we try to post news both here, on Facebook and send out to the Mailing List, Fiddle News, but we have been warned by Mailchimp that we are getting a lot of bounces on the Newsletter. Please check your SPAM boxes to see of Fiddle News is going there. If you no longer want to be on the list, just hit the “Unsubscribe” button at the bottom. If there are too many refused mailings, Mailchimp may decommission the list and we have to start all over. Thanks from the World FIddle Day Team.
