Tunes ‘n Stuff: Contra Dance Masterclass Series for Musicians with Audrey Knuth
Monday, June 15, 2020,  7:00 PM -  8:30 PM

Looking for an excuse to learn some new tunes and become a better contra dance musician?

This is the perfect time to focus on improving and learning new skills - all from the comfort of your home and in your favorite pajamas!

Beginning Monday April 27th, I’ll be hosting a weekly 90-minute group Masterclass teaching a new contra dance tune each week.

Together, we will dive deeply into what you can do while playing for dances, including harmony, improv, chords … and wiggling your butt while playing.

I’m gearing this Masterclass towards melody players (not just fiddlers) who have some experience playing for contra dances or curious about what it means to be a contra dance musician. I’m happy to take tune requests and questions you’d like to go over!

Join me on Zoom for these informative and creative workshops (link sent with your registration confirmation).

Time: Mondays starting 4-5:30pm Pacific Standard Time (7:00-8:30 Eastern Standard Time)

Cost: $20 per week (very much a sliding scale - pay whatever you feel comfortable doing. Seriously. I mean it.)

Sponsored by BACDS: Limited Scholarships are available thanks to BACDS. Please contact me for more info!

You know Audrey Knuth is performing if the room is buzzing at a higher level. Her fiddling, featured in bands including The Free Raisins, The Gaslight Tinkers, Audacious (with Larry Unger), and Wake Up Robin, has electrified dance and concert halls across the US and Europe. Hailing from Honolulu and now living in California, she cut her folk teeth in the Boston area, attending Berklee College of Music and spending years exploring the thriving New England folk scene. Audrey’s fiddle playing is rhythmically lively and spontaneous; she's guaranteed to get you up and dancing. She specializes in English dance, New England, Celtic, and Old Time tunes (and did we mention she’s also an audio engineer?!). You might also have taken a workshop with Audrey, as she’s been on staff at various camps including CDSS English week at Pinewoods, Ashokan Northern Week, BACDS American Week, and Halsway Manor.  For more on Audrey, visit her at
