Blues Fiddle for intermediate players (or advanced players who don't play much blues). This is for people who already play the violin (or fiddle) reasonably well and want to learn how to play the blues. We can also take a side trip into Cajun/Creole fiddle.

Michael Jerome Browne, Canadian Solo Folk Artist of the Year in 2008, Maple Blues Acoustic Artist Award Winner, International Blues Challenge Semi-Finalist, Three time Juno Award Nominee in both the roots and blues categories. Michael is a multi-instumentalist, a songwriter, and a living encyclopedia of American Roots music.

Whether he's gliding a slide across his national guitar, pulling his bow over the fiddle strings to play a lively Cajun waltz, or frailing away on his gourd banjo Michael's passion and virtuosity always shine through. In the true tradition of folk music, his performances inspire us to see the interconnections between the many cultures and influences that gave birth to American Roots Music. Gospel, Blues, Old-Time, Country, Soul and Cajun, expect to hear all of this and more from a performer who's been called a street-smart archivist and an absolute treasure.

Michael is also playing a show at the Rogue Folk Club on Friday May 4th at 8pm. Info here:
