Last fall, Bruce Molsky taught a fun workshop series called Old-Time Fiddle Styles, in which Bruce surveyed old-time fiddle techniques and fiddle styles for those new to old-time fiddling as well as experienced fiddlers, taking a detailed and in-depth look at regional styles, including Kentucky, North Carolina, West Virginia, and more. With over 10 hours of material, this workshop is a treasure trove of fiddle tunes in authentic old-time styles. We’re happy to announce that you can now subscribe to the course on Peghead Nation. Take a look at a sample lesson, above, and see the main Old-Time Fiddle Styles page for Bruce’s workshop overview, and to sign up!

Bruce says, “If you can just play a few simple old-time fiddle tunes, or if you’re an experienced player, this workshop series will be useful and fun! The breadth and depth of fiddle tradition and regional styles and great players of the past is huge, and to cover it in a short course is not even close to possible, but we’ll use the tunes to look at some of the best of that music and learn some great lessons from it. Through this, we’ll see differences between some of the local styles that were so different from each other before radio and mass media had its influence. Kentucky, “Round Peak” (North Carolina), West Virginia, Georgia, Texas, and states in the midwest like Missouri and Illinois all have deep and strong traditions. We’ll dip our musical toes into as many of them as we can. At the end, you’ll emerge with some nice repertoire, technical nuts and bolts, and more ideas for listening and learning.”
