Thanks so much to everyone who came out for De Temps Antan

Address: 1219 Corona Street.

ALSO: It was great fun to watch Andre fiddle with our own fiddle-mensch Ryan McKasson
at the after-party. Ryan's a wonderful Scottish fiddler in the NW and
he brought forth some beautiful tunes during the jam. He loves
Quebecois music, so here's where you can catch him this weekend:
Ryan McKasson - Scottish Fiddle Workshop @ Dusty Strings, Sunday, April 3rd,
12:15 p.m. - 2:15 p.m., Cost $35.
Scottish Fiddler's Guide to the Galaxy: how to make magic happen with
the bow, spawn a fauna of ornamentation on the fingerboard - and feel
good doing it. Ryan will teach tunes from the Scottish tradition
(Strathspeys, Reels, Jigs, Slow Airs), focusing on bowings and
ornamentation. Any instruments are welcome, but some of the lesson will
be spent on fiddle specific bowings. Ryan teaches all tunes aurally, so
sheet music will be made available after the workshop. Best for players
at an intermediate or advanced skill level.
