This is the most important date in every London fiddler's calendar; a chance to meet friends, learn new tunes, see some amazing playing, buy some fiddle stuff. People come from all over the South East to be there- you'll rarely meet so many fiddlers in one place!
As usual there will be a series of afternoon workshops, a fiddle contest, session in the bar, and an evening concert featuring a wide range of performers.
And YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A FIDDLE PLAYER! The concert is open to everyone and you're guaranteed a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, and a great set of performances.
Guests this year include
- Germa Adan (Haiti)
- Emily Askew (English)
- Emily Smith (American Old time)
- Fraser Parry (Folk cello, Balkan)
- Gundula Gruen (Eastern European)
- Pete Cooper (English/Old time)
