Headwaters Music & Arts announces it's latest mini-workshop for string players. Fiddlin' Around is a free opportunity for students age 5-11 with any level of playing experience. On Thursday October 24th, 6-7pm, students can bring their violin or fiddle and join fiddler and step dancer Carrie Dlutkowski as the group explores tunes that are adaptable and creative. Students will be able to take the tunes with them as they can be played alone or in a group, by people of any level of experience, and are meant to be crafted by the musicians themselves. Students will develop the confidence to take the tunes home and "play with" them! Students should be accompanied by a guardian. Adults are encouraged to bring a device for recordings which will be useful in future practice.

Born and raised in Upper Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula, Carrie grew up playing violin. With almost two decades of experience, Carrie is a talented classical and folk musician with a focus on the development of Scottish, French-Canadian and Métis (Native/French/ Scottish) fiddle styles in the 18th century. She explores the roots of traditional music, while also using it as a foundation for branching out into new creative territory.

Fiddlin' Around Kids Mini-Workshop will be held at Headwaters Music & Arts (519 Minnesota Ave NW, Bemidji). Space is limited to 20 youth participants. RSVP online or by calling 218.444.5606 by Monday, October 18th.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota, through a grant from the Region 2 Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
