About the Workshop

On Sunday, May 1, at 1 PM Central Time, Deborah Greenblatt will be presenting a free virtual Fiddle Contest Workshop, streaming from the Homestead National Historical Park.  During the workshop, fiddlers will learn how to find fiddle contests, how to prepare for a contest, and how to choose appropriate tunes for each category.  Fiddle contest rules will also be discussed.
