at Online (11:00 AM)
Sunday, December 20, 11:00-11:45am Pacific time

Fiddle Tunes Across the North Atlantic

Lecture by Laura Risk, performance faculty, McGill University:

From the earliest beginnings, fiddle tunes were one of the most popular forms of music and dance. Hundreds of books of these tunes were published as well as handed down through oral tradition. In this lecture, musicologist-performer Laura Risk shows how these traditions travelled across the Atlantic.
