The Kootenay Fiddlers are busy planning the 19th Annual 2020 Fiddle, Guitar and Piano Camp. This week-long summer camp will take place from July 13-17, 2020 at the Selkirk College Castlegar Campus.
This very popular camp continues to provide some of Canada's very best champion fiddlers as instructors, headed by Master Fiddler and the Order of Canada recipient, Gordon Stobbe from Nova Scotia. During the workshop, renowned guitar and piano teachers will focus their teaching on piano and guitar accompaniment.
“This five-day camp promises to be another year of offerings that will meet a wide range of interest and skill levels,” says Gary Shannon, president of the local fiddle club. “There will be a little something for everyone and a whole lot of fun and great memories. Whether you are at an absolute beginner or advanced level, everyone is welcome.”
Evenings Feature Great Entertainment
There are classes for fiddle, guitar and piano accompaniment, plus a variety of workshops on related topics such as stepdancing, harmony, vocals, and What To Play When You Don't Know The Tune. In the evenings there will be events such as a family-friendly Old Time Dance, an instructor lead jam session at Millenium Park in Castlegar, a student concert and talent night and an instructor concert at Gyro Park in Trail.
The music is based upon East Coast Old Time Fiddling. Our primary instructor, Gordon Stobbe, is a Master Fiddler and Order of Canada recipient, who hails from the East Coast and instructs at workshops around the country. Several other first-rate instructors are joining Gord for our 2020 Fiddle workshop.
