Free – $22

The Southeast Ohio Musical Lending Library, Stuart’s Opera House & Athens County Foundation present to you a musical workshop series! Starting with Fiddling with the Shaws: Liz & Lynn, on Sunday, Feb 24th, 2-4pm at Arts West

Join champion fiddlers and experienced folk music teachers Liz and Lynn Shaw as they explore various fiddle styles and techniques that give the instrument its signature sounds. The “informance” part of the workshop will be followed by a lecture on the “care and feeding or your fiddle.” As time allows, Lynn, a luthier with 35 years experience repairing and restoring violins, will inspect fiddles and identify problems that are repairable. The afternoon will conclude with a slow jam for those who already play and brought their instruments. Those without instruments wanting to join the jam may borrow one from the Musical Lending Library. Join this entertaining approach to all things fiddle, and become inspired to drag Grandma’s Stradivarius out of the attic and start fiddling around! ule!

The 2nd Installement of the Musical Workshop Series will be held March 31st, 2-4pm at Stuart’s Opera House: West Afircan Drum with Lawrence Greene

The tickets are offered at a variety of prices to suit different types of budgets and keep the workshops accessible to all. Please pay what you can and enjoy!
