Music Jam and Open Mike at Hoover School, plus a KidFiddle workshop and a Mini-Concert

Join us at the October jam at Hoover School for music indoors and out. Our usual format: multiple jam groups from 1-5, open-mike performances on stage in the Hoover multi-purpose room starting around 1:30 and the two learning groups: the Slow Jam group starting at about 1:30, and the Tune Builder group starting at about 2:00, each for an hour or so.

Elizabeth Dequine Also from 2 to 3 pm we will offer a KidFiddle workshop, led by musical powerhouse Elizabeth Dequine, leader of her family's nationally and internationally acclaimed band, Celtic Spring. Here's the event flyer (PDF).

KidFiddle workshops are intended for advanced-beginner to intermediate fiddlers, 17 and under. We'll invite the students to play on stage with Elizabeth after the class. Tuition is only $5, and youth admission to the jam is free as always. You can sign up at the event, but we'd appreciate hearing from you in advance (at kidfiddle /at/ fiddlers.org) if you know a young fiddler who would like to participate.

At 3:30, after the workshop, Elizabeth will perform a mini-concert for us. Come to hear what the students have learned, and then to hear Elizabeth play!
