Fiddleheads Residency with Joanne Garton starts 6/26/21

Joanne Garton is teaching at 3-part Fiddleheads residency on 6/26/21, 7/17/21 and 8/7/21, finishing with a performance after 1pm on 8/8/21 at the Northeast Fiddlers Association meeting at Hope Davey Memorial Park in Waterbury.

Each residency session starts at 10am and finishes by 11am.  The 1st session will be via Zoom where plans for the 2nd and 3rd sessions at an in-person location TBA, somewhere in or between Burlington and Montpelier.  Participants should be at an intermediate to advanced level and willing to commit to all 3 sessions.

Joanne is a fiddler and dancer from Montpelier. She performs, teaches, and records traditional music from Scotland and Cape Breton with big influences from Ireland, England, Quebec, Appalachia and New England.  She also dances to this music — Cape Breton (Scottish) step, Highland, ceilidh and other percussive dance styles that pass through New England.  Regarding her approach to music and performing, she says, ‘The tunes inspire a journey. Despite my best intentions to track my route, all I can do is go along for the ride. And I’m overjoyed to do that.’
