About the Event: Celebrating 30 years since the Wild Rose Old Tyme Fiddlers Association was registered under its current identity. 30 years is something to celebrate and we are doing just that.
There will be two afternoon workshops for fiddle and accompanist combined with an evening dance, with the Calvin Vollrath band. Our fiddle workshop features Calvin Vollrath, and our accompanist workshop features Marc Ladouceur, both offering great tips to musicians on how to get the best out of your instruments as well as performance tips.
We have a treat! Both instructors will teach participants our NEW Tune “The Wild Rose Fiddlers Old Tyme Waltz” composed by Calvin Vollrath. This tune has been specially commissioned to mark our 30th Anniversary and will be our Club’s own signature tune. We celebrate this day/evening with workshops, and a Family Dance that will appeal to both adults and their children.
We will also be creating a 30th Anniversary “Memory Booklet” and inviting members both current and past to share reminiscences and thoughts about the early days and evolution of the Club. Be Part of our Memory and share your thoughts and recollections with us. Please submit your contribution in 100 words or less, with photo if possible, to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 3.
We gratefully acknowledge the City of Edmonton’s support in the rental of our venue.
Our day’s events are open to both members and non-members so come join us and celebrate.
See you there!
