NINETEENTH ANNUAL SCHOOLHOUSE FIDDLING BEE
Greenblatt & Seay proudly announce the Nineteenth ANNUAL SCHOOLHOUSE FIDDLING BEE. This historical, hysterical event will take place on Sunday, October 11, at 2:30 PM, downstairs in the Old Avoca, Nebraska Schoolhouse. In the Open Division, fiddlers will play a hoedown, a waltz, and a tune of choice. There will also be other divisions of competition available for the adventurous fiddlers, including a Singing Fiddler's Contest, a Twin Fiddler's Contest, a Fee-Fi-Faux Fiddler's Contest (fiddle tunes played on any instrument other than a fiddle), and a Hocus-Pocus Contest (cross-tuning, sound effects, dancing, etc.), which will give fiddlers an opportunity to play tunes that are usually not allowed in any other contest.
Contestants can pre-register on line: (http://www.greenblattandseay.com/schoolhouse_fiddling_bee_preregistration.shtml).
Admission is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for students, and $1.00 for children. Fiddlers and their back-ups are admitted for free. The contest will be followed by a light snack and an acoustic jam session.
Internationally acclaimed fiddler, Julie Lyonn Lieberman, will be giving fiddle workshops in November in the Old Avoca (Nebraska) Schoolhouse. On Friday, November 13, starting at 7PM, the subjects will be "Six Approaches to Jamming", and "Modal Improvisation". On Saturday, November 14, starting at 9 AM, the topics will be "Gypsy Jazz" and "One Tune, Five Styles". These workshops are appropriate for any string player who desires to open their ears to new ways of making music.
JULIE LYONN LIEBERMAN has helped develop the alternative string field over the last thirty-five+ years through her work as an educator, author, radio producer, composer, recording artist, journalist, and performer. Her former students have toured with Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Cyndi Lauper, Celine Dion, Billy Joel, and one of her former students plays regularly on Dancing with the Stars.
