Darol interviews Republic Of Strings fiddler Lauren Rioux

The latest "other" fiddle player in Darol's long-running ensemble Republic Of Strings is Maine's Lauren Rioux.

A well-known teacher and pioneer 5-string fiddle player, Lauren took a degree in Music Education at an early age and discovered fiddling 8 years ago at a string teachers' conference in Ohio. She has become a sort of Poster Girl for the possibilty of acquiring new styles on the violin. She teaches at her private studio, tours with R.O.S. and Brittany Haas, instructs at fiddle camps, and runs clinics on How To Jam all over the country.
She has a new recording All The Brighter available on

This 4-part discussion focuses on beginning and basic fiddle techniques with tried and tested ideas for holding the fiddle and getting your basic techniques together.
