We’re happy to welcome back Liz Faiella to lead our September 25 workshop (click on the calendar event for details.)
A Celtic fiddler with New England contradance flair and classical sensitivities, Liz Faiella has played for audiences at premier folk venues, contradances, and festivals around New England. Along with her brother, guitarist Dan Faiella, Liz has performed at Club Passim, the Boston Celtic Music Festival, the New England Folk Festival, the Acadia Trad Festival, and New Hampshire’s Seacoast Irish Festival. She has also taught at Maine Fiddle Camp and Acadia School of Traditional Music & Arts. She gives fiddle lessons and coaches folk ensembles at the Concord Community Music School in Concord, NH, and teaches at her home studio in Northwood, NH. Visit www.lizanddanmusic.com for information on her upcoming performances.
Liz’s theme this month is “Tunes from the Gow Family,” and the tunes are:
– Mrs. Hamilton of Pencaitland (Nathaniel Gow) – slow air – C
– Mrs. Dundas of Arniston (William Gow) – reel – C
– Johnnie in Nether Mains (Niel Gow) – Scots measure – F
The Gow family is to Scottish music as the Bach family is to the Baroque! Come along and deepen your knowledge of the “classics” of the Scottish tradition.
