There is an exciting workshop opportunity for violin students at the SSSG!
Shane Cook, a Canadian and International fiddle champion will be visiting our school to teach a class on fiddling.
A Canadian and international fiddle champion, Shane Cook captivates audiences with technically thrilling and adventurous performances. Noted by The Canadian Fiddlers' Hall of Fame as one of the "finest fiddlers in the world today," Shane has distinguished himself as a master of the Canadian old-time fiddle tradition. He also excels at styles ranging from Irish and Scottish to French-Canadian and Bluegrass. Shane is a three-time Canadian Open National Champion, a three-time Canadian Grand Masters Champion, a Grand North American Champion and the only foreign fiddler to win the US Grand National Championship.
Shane leads his own group, Shane Cook and the Woodchippers, and performs with several ensembles including the PBS hit Bowfire. He has toured extensively in Canada,
the US, the UK, Ireland, Germany, China and Taiwan.
Students will have the opportunity to expand their musical vocabulary and explore styles beyond classical music. For our students who already enjoy playing a fiddle tune, come out and learn some specialized techniques and a new tune.
The class is offered to all Book 4+ students and any other enthusiastic musicians (parents/teachers) who would like to learn a fiddle tune!
1:30-2:30 p.m. February 11
