Fiddleheads with Joanne Garton

First in-person Fiddleheads activities since early 2020, a rehearsal on 8/7/21 and a performance on 8/8/21 with Joanne Garton. If you plan to attend Saturday and/or Sunday (great if you can do both) or have questions, contact  
No prior experience with Fiddleheads needed.  Learn a few tunes on Saturday, play them on Sunday.  We need at least 5 confirmations.  Would be great to see (and hear) you!
Fiddleheads rehearsal will be in the Old Shelter in Hubbard Park in Montpelier on 8/7/21 from 10am – 11am.  $5 donation for rehearsal on Saturday. Sunday performance is at 1pm at Hope Davey Park in Waterbury for the Northeast Fiddlers Association meeting.
Joanne Garton is 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.
