15th Annual Wallowa Fiddle Tunes Camp
July 7-12, 2018 at Wallowa School, Wallowa, Oregon
The Wallowa Valley Music Alliance is pleased to present the 15th Annual Wallowa Fiddle Tunes Camp, July 7-12 on the campus of Wallowa School. This event was begun in 2005 with the goal of offering affordable, group fiddle instruction for individuals and families in a relaxed, week-long camp format. Participating in a musical community through music and dance has resulted in the addition of instruction in other accompaniment string instruments as well as on-site technique of ensemble participation.
Our wonderful team of camp instructors this summer include: John Weed (Irish fiddle), Lisa Ornstein (Southern fiddle), Larry Chung (roots fiddle), Carla Arnold (Kidz fiddle), Stuart Mason (mandolin), Maggie Lind (clawhammer banjo), Patrick Lind (Southern Guitar), Emily Muller-Cary (voice, mandolin), Matt Bell (roots guitar), and Duane Boyer (beginning guitar), Alan Feves (bass). Larry B. Smith will keep the fun going and the blood moving by offering traditional buck dancing as well as square and contra dances for campers as well as the community. There is also a Mini-Camp for younger kids through Emerson Music Arts.
