Summer fiddle workshops 2020
Geoff and Trish, and many of our colleagues, often spend our summers teaching and performing at workshops, camps, and festivals across Canada. Summer 2020 was supposed to offer up much of these same activities .... and then COVID-19 happened.
We still wanted to find a way to connect with colleagues and with students while still following all the public health guidelines. After many weeks of consideration and conversation, we are excited to say that we found a solution!
Geoff and Trish, along with our dear friends Gordon Stobbe and JJ Guy, will be offering outdoor in-person fiddle workshops in a variety of communities in BC between July 28 and August 12. You can learn all about these workshops by visiting the "workshops" page of this site. Registration opens at 9am on July 1st. Due to the social distancing limitations, classes are limited to 5 students per teacher, so there are very limited seats available. Don't delay!
We bring the fiddle workshops to you this summer!

NAME THAT TUNE
Congratulations Barbara Lehtonen for picking the title for the new tune - Ptarmigan Swing!
Sneak Peak of Twin fiddles 5 - Reel Dubois
Last November JJ Guy joined Gordon Stobbe in Nova Scotia to begin work on their fifth Twin Fiddles recording. Tunes were written and recorded and the result, Twin Fiddles 5, was born. The CD release has been shelved for now for obvious reasons but we are excited to share a few of the tunes to give fiddle fans a taste of what is to come. The first tune, “Reel Dubois”, was written for a very dear friend from Langbank, Saskatchewan, Cheryl Dubois. Cheryl is still recovering from a near-fatal car accident which, although it came close to claiming her life, has not diminished the inner spark of one of the most joyful, happy, thankful and upbeat people we have ever met. She is a mother to 2 great daughters and an inspiration to everyone who has had the amazing good luck to know her. We emailed her a copy when the tune was finished. Her response? ‘This happy tune made me dance around the room’. Let’s all have a dance with Cheryl.
