(Erik Pearson will be teaching Nov. 5 & 19. Evie will teach the other classes)

Utilizing different tunings and syncopations, drop thumb, rolls, etc, this class will move through acquiring repertoire by looking at specific fiddle players, and their signature tunes, or versions of common tunes. Emphasis on hearing what the fiddle is playing and translating left-hand melodies and right-hand syncopations to develop your own style.

*Deering Good Tyme Banjos are available for rent for the session, or sale at a discounted price. Contact if you are interested in renting or purchasing a banjo.

Evie Ladin is a banjo player, step-dancer, singer, and songwriter with a lifetime of experience in traditional American cultural arts. She grew up in a trad folk scene up and down the Eastern Seaboard of the US, travels the world, and calls the rich arts scene in Oakland, California home. With The Stairwell Sisters, all-gal old-time teardown, Evie performs traditional and original material on clawhammer banjo, vocals, clogging and hambone. With Keith Terry & Crosspulse, she performs rhythm-based multi-cultural music & dance works, bringing her Appalachian skills to collaborations with a variety of other cultural arts, including other styles with roots in the African Diaspora. Evie calls rowdy community square dances, performs for extremely diverse populations of school-kids, and tears it up at clubs and festivals.
