Summer to Fall 2018

Greetings Fiddlers!

A hugely eventful Summer and Fall season this 2018 for your Fiddling’ Prof.

After some intense teaching weeks at Berklee’s Global String Week and at Mike Block’s incredible Florida String Camp, A quick pivot out of Florida took me to some tour dates in California with my group The Furies and then up to festivals in Oregon, then right over to a great week at the Rockygrass Bluegrass Academy with the Artistworks crew, ending the week with an Artistworks Bluegrass All-Stars set and a David Grisman Reunion set. Immediately thereafter I flew to North Carolina and taught for a week at the wonderful Swannanoa Gathering near Asheville, then took a day to drive to Elkins where I taught and played concerts at Bluegrass Week at Augusta Heritage. That weekend I was able to work at my old buddy Mike Marshall’s Mandolin Camp in… yes… Marshall Michigan, where I took a break from fiddle and instructed and jammed on Octave Mandolin. A couple of great shows with Artistworks Bluegrass Vocal Instructor Michael Daves later, I found myself packing and managing a household move across the country in a trailer truck! We have made a huge change in lifestyle which is still reverberating across my life. I’m intrigued that I’ll have more time to devote to building up the Artistworks Lessons and finding more cool ways to think about teaching.

But the second weekend in September found us right back in Massachusetts, performing songs from my brand-new recording MUSIC OF OUR PEOPLE: Songs of the Roaring Sixties, at Freshgrass Festival at Mass/MoCA. You can purchase that recording here.  Now, here I am back in Wichita, Kansas, getting ready to play Duo music with a great Kansas string orchestra, and Mike Marshall is playing me edits of our next Duo recording!

And over the weekend of October 5-7, I’ll be conducting my FIRST EVER very own Darol Anger Fiddle Retreat in Benicia, California, with guests Annie Staninec and Emy Phelps. Might be a couple of last-minute slots open for that one too. Then what, you ask? Well, Fiddle Hell, in November, run by the intrepid Reiner Family up in Massachusetts, an orchestra in Alabama, and a run of Holiday Shows in New England will round out the year, plus some teaching days back at Berklee; But I am very glad to be living out West again. Or at least have my stuff there!
