Music Jam and Open Mike at Hoover School and a Concert -- and a Special Event
Join us at the March
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.
Also from 2 to 3 pm we will offer a KidFiddle workshop,
led by multi-instrumentalist (and contra-dance caller)
Erik Hoffman. Erik teaches fiddle
and other instruments, for example in multi-week class series at the
Freight & Salvage
in Berkeley, and has worked with the children at
Walker Creek Music Camp.

KidFiddle workshops are intended for advanced-beginner to
intermediate fiddlers, 17 and under.
We'll invite the students to play on stage with Erik 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.
After the KidFiddle workshop we’ll ask the students to perform
on stage with Erik.
Then at about 3:20 or 3:30 Erik will perform a mini-concert for us.
Come to hear what the students have learned,
and stay to hear Erik play!
Special New Year discount January-March 2016: $5 adult admission (17 and under free as usual).
