Fiddling Workshop for Beginners
This Event Occurred in the Past.
Spencer & Rains, Old Time Bluegrass musicians from Kansas who have taught bluegrass and folk music nationally and internationally will offer a fiddling workshop for beginners from 4-5 pm at State Street Theater.
Tricia Spencer is a Kansan who grew up learning the tradition of old time music from her Grandparents. At an early age, she was perched up on some stage tapping her foot to the beat of fiddles, banjos, mandolins and guitars. Tricia is multi-instrumentalist who has studied with some of the great masters in old time and is highly sought after as a performer, dance fiddler, and instructor. Howard Rains is a native Texan from a musical and artistic family whose two obsessions are painting and playing the old style Texas fiddle music. Howard plays rare, old tunes learned from friends, family, mentors, and old recordings. Together, Spencer & Rains have performed nationally and internationally, singing traditional American folk songs and playing old time fiddle. Both multi-instrumentalists, they are steeped in traditional music, yet at the same time, taking traditions in new directions with their tight vocal harmony and unique twin fiddling.
Tickets for the workshop are $10 and available at the door or online at https://spence-rains.eventbrite.com. Please plan to come 15 minutes early for tuning if you plan to attend the workshop.
