Lisa Ornstein & Dan Compton Lead December Fiddle Tunes Workshop & Concert


Celebrate the season with a blaze of great music December 4 at the Chapel at Fort Worden. Fiddler Lisa Ornstein and guitarist Dan Compton are teaming up for a 2:30pm concert featuring original melodies and traditional tunes from French Canada and the Appalachians. Soulful music from the North and South of Way Back East. Fiddle and guitar workshops will precede the concert.

Lisa is both a “tune catcher” and a fiddle virtuoso: “she has power, intonation, and a bowing arm that crackles with energy, yet conveys amazing nuances, a wonderful ear for phrasing, and a sharp musical wit” (Fiddler Magazine).  Dan is a masterful, inventive guitarist with a keen and knowing ear for harmony. Since 2008, Lisa and Dan have been delighting audiences with an energized, finely wrought dialogue between fiddle and guitar, one which brings to light rare and beautiful tunes, both old and new. The concert will feature music from their new CD, The Magic Paintbrush.
