Trad Music Village with Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas
2 Day Workshop - 27th & 28th January
Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas have a tradition now of holding their two-day Trad Music Workshop / Masterclass for intermediate to advanced string players in Celtic Connections. Based on the fiddle music of Scotland and beyond, the Trad Strings Weekend Masterclass is for players of violin, viola, cello and string bass.
Although the weekend is aimed at adult players, teenagers are most welcome. The goal is to explore playing traditional music in a group with emphasis on arrangement ideas and the techniques that give traditional music its particular flavour. Using elements of language and dance, fiddle tunes and arrangement ideas work together to form a larger medley. All music will be taught by ear, but music will be provided to take away. Assistant tutors will be on hand to make sure that all ability levels are covered.
