Fiddle and Cello Workshops – Salt Lake City
July 27 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm UTC-7
On Saturday, July 27th from 12:30 to 2:00 pm, the renown fiddler, Vi Wickam, will be conducting a fiddle workshop at the West Valley City Hall, immediately following the Salt Lake Chapter’s regular jam session. At the workshop Vi will combine elements of his popular workshop, covering topics such as improvising essentials, music theory, playing with a group, and preparing for fiddle contests. Players of all levels are welcome, and admittance is covered through OTF dues.
Concurrently, Vi’s musical partner on this tour, expert cellist Daniel Delaney, will also be leading a workshop for cellists for a modest fee at the same time and location. Daniel’s workshop will address improvisation, groove playing and accompaniment, chops, and practicing like a professional.
