Scottish music, dance, and Gaelic language have been safeguarded and nurtured in Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia for centuries. In this workshop, Katie will teach a classic tune from the Cape Breton fiddle repertoire by breaking it down, addressing bowing, ornamentation, and feel as we dig into the tune. Recordings and sheet music will be provided after class.
Katie grew up in a vibrant Scottish and Cape Breton music community in Boston, and is a Scottish Fiddle Champion! She has been called the “New Face of Scottish Fiddling in the USA”. She attended the University of Glasgow and the National Piping Centre in Glasgow.
