Seattle musician and Fiddle Tunes regular Devon Leger has written a very interesting piece in Victory Music about the emergence of a new generation of participants and faculty at the Festival of American Fiddle Tunes. For all of you in the I-5 area, Devon offers this nugget:
"The Festival is now more successful than ever, but few people in Seattle
realize that the Festival also offers public concerts.
These concerts feature master musicians and are relatively cheap. So if
you’ve never heard of the Festival of American Fiddle Tunes, check out
their concert page and plan a fun outing to the Peninsula. These artists
are often impossible to catch outside of the Festival!"
We couldn't have said it better ourselves. Read the whole article to learn more.
Tickets for the Festival's July 4 and July 9 shows are available online,
or by calling 800-746-1982.
