Learn a Challenging Western Swing Tune "Draggin' the Bow" and How to Fancy It Up


Saturday

2:00-3:00PM

Location: Jean Ritchie Room 389

Instructor: Ellen Carlson (fiddle) & John Robinson (guitar)

Style: Bluegrass Western Swing

Ellen will start by teaching a basic version of "Draggin' the Bow" and then explore typical little things to spice it up and make it sound more "swingy." She might even teach the triple shuffle variation, with 50% more notes than the double shuffle. Ellen is an inspiring and clear teacher as well as a fine fiddler in multiple traditions.
