The Schoolhouse Performance Series will feature championship fiddler, Deborah Greenblatt, and multi-instrumentalist, David Seay performing "Fiddle Fables" on Sunday, May 13, at 2:30 PM, downstairs in The Old Avoca Schoolhouse in Avoca, Nebraska.
With the help of her fabulous five-string fiddle, and some talented fiddle students, Deborah Greenblatt explores some of the trials, tribulations, and lessons that fiddlers and other musicians often have in common. There is advice for the beginner (“It Starts With Your Feet”), advice for the fiddler’s families (“Have Mercy”), for the growing fiddler (“Shopping For a Fiddle Blues”), for the brave fiddler (“I’m Gonna Fiddle In a Contest”), as well as the fiddler who plays the viola (“Out of Fiddle, Out of My Mind”). There are also inspiring stories of real-life fiddlers (“Cactus Pete”), teachers (“Alice Johnson’s Jig”), and students (“Mary Ann the Fiddler”).
The historic Old Avoca Schoolhouse was built in 1925, and has been the home of the Schoolhouse Performance Series since 1990. Music lessons, workshops, fiddle camps, and field trips are offered by Schoolhouse residents, Greenblatt & Seay, and are available by appointment.
