Thanks all who made the rehearsal February 25th at Elley Long Music Center. Videos to come for group members within the next few days. This was our 4th scheduled rehearsal (of 6 total), and is the only one without some sort of additional obligation/option, a concert or something on the same day. Getting excited about […]

Pascal Gemme has to postpone his session with Fiddleheads on March 5th for a later date. We’ll still do a rehearsal that day, but the session leader won’t be Pascal. Replacement TBA. Fiddleheads Rehearsal Session
A dozen fiddlers learning O’Carolan tunes from Dominique Dodge on Saturday January 16th at Fiddleheads rehearsal at the Burlington Violin Shop, the 1st of at least 3 sessions before performing at the Carolan Festival on 6/18/16.
Pascal Gemme will be teaching some tunes in the first hour, after announcements from Pete and Mark. Apprentices are invited to stay after 12 noon, if interested. While the anchors and associates work with Pete and Oliver, Mark will teach a set of Irish tunes that can be used at sessions and perhaps some other situations.
There’s a Fiddleheads rehearsal coming up this Saturday. Assuming the weather cooperates we will be at Chapin Orchards in Essex Junction instead of the Burlington Violin Shop. The violin shop will have a petting zoo set up with stringed instruments and Fiddleheads will be co-located. Plan to come early or stay late for some apple […]
