The Fiddler's Picnic Instrument Workshops provide a rare opportunity for beginning and intermediate players to experience hands-on instruction in folk style from some of the area's finest musicians. Many are professional music teachers who give lessons year round. Instruction level will be determined by attendees. Often there will be both beginning and intermediate fiddle workshops. We try to provide a variety of styles that vary from year to year. Bring your instruments and look for the signs for the location of each workshop.
Note: Workshops and instructors are subject to change depending on availability of volunteers.
