The Julian Family Fiddle Camp 2011 has come and gone, and I dare say a good time was had by all. Indeed, my personal expectations were exceeded on almost every level, i.e., from the number of people, to the caliber of teaching, the phenomal performances given by Evan Marshall, Scott Gates, Calvin Vollrath and Katie Harvey, the wonderful dances led by Martha Wild, and the encouragement and instruction given by the ever-smiling Jane Frey. As the Producer/Director of the event, its expected that I would write glowingly of what we all experienced, but I am hoping those who “risked” coming to the inaugural year of a heretofore unknown fiddle camp will post their thoughts for all to read.
I look forward to the comments of those who came as students, instructors, family members and/or visitors to the camp, believing these views will mean far more to those considering whether or not to attend next year’s event.
While a long ways off, I will note that the enthusiasm at – and for – the Julian Family Fiddle Camp gives every reason to plan for 2012, and am adding an additional day to next year’s camp. For those who plan ahead, the tentative dates for Julian Family Fiddle Camp 2012 are Wednesday, April 11th – Sunday, April 15th.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
