In this class, we’ll warm up with some exercises using various basic flatfooting steps, and then we’ll focus on how we can not just dance along at jam sessions, but participate as musicians in the group. We’ll spend some time with call-and-response, syncopated steps, and getting creative with moves we already know, so that we can have more interesting dialogues between ourselves as musicians/dancers and the people we are making music with.

Bubbaville-sponsored Kentucky Showcase event: Kentucky Regional Fiddle Styles with John Harrod – Kentucky fiddling was not just one style. There were many different regional styles with different histories, repertoires, tune types, and phrasing tendencies. While our ultimate goal is always to evolve our own style of playing, I think it’s helpful to listen and explore these different sounds and approaches to fully appreciate the range of feeling that was represented in these old local traditions. In this workshop we will take a brief tour of the Commonwealth, get acquainted with a few interesting characters, and learn some tunes that exemplify these regional styles. The only requirement will be open-mindedness, flexibility, and willingness to adjust and try some new licks. At the Church of Acoustic Redemption, 8325 N. Central St., Portland, OR. Sign up.

Bubbaville-sponsored Kentucky Showcase event: Glimpses of the African-American Fiddle Tradition in Kentucky with John Harrod – My first mentor was a black fiddler named Bill Livers whom I met when I moved to Owen Co. My second mentor was Darley Fulks who firmly believed that the music he played originated with black people. Then through Asa Martin I discovered Doc Roberts and learned that most of his repertoire had come from black fiddlers. Subsequent visits with other white fiddlers in the area confirmed and expanded this connection. This workshop will explore the little that is known about what must have been a great fiddle tradition among blacks in Kentucky. At the Church of Acoustic Redemption, 8325 N.
