with Paul Kirk

Join Paul Kirk for this fiddle workshop in which he will teach Hell and Scissors. This tune comes from Kentucky fiddler James W. Day, AKA Jilson Setters, and we will be tuned in cross G. He’ll show you the flavor bits to help you get a sweet “Old-Time sound.” Also, please be sure to check out Paul’s Patreon (patreon.com/paulkirk) and Old-Time TOTW series on YouTube.

Paul Kirk has been playing bowed string instruments for 41 years and has been teaching them for 33 years privately, in classroom settings, and in workshop formats. He has closely studied Old-Time fiddle bowing patterns and techniques and has devised practical methods for teaching them. One of his specialties is teaching Old-Time fiddle to “cross over” students, especially those coming from a background in Classical violin. For many, acquiring the style and sound of this seemingly simple music can be difficult. He will help you get your violin to sound like a fiddle. 

Paul gives remote and live private lessons and workshops. For more information please send an email to: FiddlerPaul71@gmail.com
