Backing Up a Singer on Fiddle or Other Lead Instrument


Saturday

2:00-3:00PM

Location: Joe Venuti Room 31

Instructor: Pete Sutherland (fiddle) & Lorraine Hammond (singer) & Bennett Hammond (guitar)

Style: Country Folk Oldtime

Says Pete: "I'm a singer myself, and so as a fiddler I love to figure out how to move around a singer, between, behind and through the lines of the song, to reflect, comment, hopefully enhance the line, and magnify the mood. You need a little basic street theory, but mostly open ears and eyes. Bring a fiddle or mandolin or cello - we'll try some ideas. Great to have Lorraine and Bennett to help with this workshop!"
