Fiddleheads

9:30am group

Sarah King finished a 2-part Fiddleheads residency with over 20 young musicians on 2/2/19 at the Burlington Violin Shop, preparing tunes for the 3/17/19 (1pm) performance at the Burlington Irish Heritage Festival Ceili at City Hall in Burlington, reviewing previously taught tunes (the Rolling Waves and the Silver Spear) and teaching the Maid Behind the Bar (video link here). If you’re planning to join Fiddleheads on 3/17/19 at City Hall, please arrive by 12 noon so that everyone can run through the tunes prior to the 1pm performance.

9:30am group

Sometime between 3/17/19 and a performance scheduled for 5/12/19 at the Shelburne Museum, Yasi Zeichner will be leading residency, building on the repertoire taught by Sarah. Proud to say that the 3 most recent residencies – Brian Perkins (late 2018), Sarah King and Yasi Zeichner – have been led by YTV board members!

Dominique Dodge will begin her annual 2-part Fiddleheads residency including Celtic harp students on 4/13/19 at the Burlington Violin Shop (2nd will be on 6/1/19), preparing for the annual Carolan Festival on 6/15/19.

The primary goal of Fiddleheads is the enjoyment of traditional music and playing that music with others. Regular participation is welcome but not required. Current Fiddleheads schedule (updated 2/2/19)……
