Come and learn a traditional old-time fiddle tune and/or waltz by ear, as well as a tag or two to polish it off. All abilities and playing levels welcome.
Brittany Newell is a violinist and fiddler from Seattle, WA. She enjoys performing concerts and square dances with old-timey bands the Dibble Duo and the Barn Owls, as well as classical music with a number of different orchestras in the Seattle area. Currently Brittany directs the orchestra program at Ballard High School, is pursuing her masters in violin, and enjoys teaching both math and music. Already steeped in classical music for a decade, Brittany understands what it’s like to shed old feathers and learn a new playing style as an adult. She’s spent most of her time fiddling in the old-time tradition, but loves a variety of styles. She’s excited to be back at the Hermit Festival this year.
