I will be giving a free fiddle workshop on Saturday, May 26, as part of the 20th Annual Tallgrass Prairie Fiddle Festival in the Homestead National Monument, in Beatrice, Nebraska. I was the first woman to win the Nebraska State Fiddling Championship, the first woman to win the Mid-America Fiddle Championship.
The atmosphere at the Tallgrass Prairie Fiddle Festival and Acoustic Band Contest is inviting and nurturing for all levels of musicians. It is a day for fiddlers of all ages and experience levels to come together much like they did when the first pioneers arrived in the 1800s and began settling the prairie.
