Workshop – Fiddle Playing for Morris – Sarah Matthews (LIVE on Zoom)

Sarah Matthews

Sarah will go through a selection of well known and loved morris dance tunes of different styles and traditions, and talk through some of her thoughts and ideas on how to give life to these ancient pieces. Ideas to be covered / discussed / developed: speed of the tune; relationship of the music with the dancer(s); use of the bow in order to achieve lift, space, energy, drive; use of ornamentation; use of double stringing. There will be plenty of time for Q&A. Click on the link below to book a place and you will be sent a Zoom link to access the event.
