Darol teaches in person this summer

Summer of 2015 will be a busy time for me; I'll be teaching at a number of fiddle "camps" and clinics all over the continent.

First up was the Yukon Acoustic Music Workshop near Whitehorse, Yukon Territory in Alaska, June 7-11. Had a very nice visit with Janetto, whom you know a student on this site.

Next I'll be back at the incredible Berklee College for the first Berklee Global String Intensive, where we basically try to compress a year's worth of the Berklee String experience into one week with the entire String faculty, which includes luminaries such as Matt Glaser, Bruce Molsky, Doc Wallace, Eugene Friesen, Mike Block, Maeve Gilchrist, Joe K. Walsh, Mimi Rabson, Rob Thomas, and others. An incredible experience in every possible string style.

That weekend also features the Berklee Roots Music Weekend, a shorter but no less intense series of sessions focusing on traditional music: Blues, Fiddle music from all over, band dynamics, Bluegrass, and everything in between.

Moving into July, DA will be at the oldest Roots Summer program in the nation, the venerable Augusta Heritage Bluegrass Week in Elkins, West Virginia July 26-31. This will be fantastic for Bluegras enthusiasts, with a stellar lineup including Byron Berline and Tammy Rogers.

From there, moving on to the heavenly Warren Wilson College near Ashville, NC for Swannanoa Fiddle Week, running concurrently with Mandolin, Banjo and Jazz Week-- what a great combination of talent assembled for this event, in a gorgeous setting.

Finally the West Coast! from August 17-21, Seattle's SPU University will host Julie Lyonn Lieberman's eclectic Strings Without Boundaries program, featuring the legendary swing fiddler Paul Anastasio and others, including Yours Truly.

Check some of these events out this summer, for a rocket-assist to your fiddling!... and say hello in person.
