Free fiddle lessons from Childsplay

We posted back in July about the fabulous new CD, Waiting For The Dawn. It is a project of Childsplay, a non-profit organization that has sprung from the annual meetings that violin maker Bob Childs has been hosting this past 20 years for owners of his fine instruments.

Childsplay has an educational side to their endeavors, and will be releasing a series of free, online instructional videos for musicians interested in traditional fiddle styles and techniques.

In this first entry, Bonnie Bewick, who performs with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and teaches at the Boston Conservatory, offers advice about bowing.
