Ken Perlman receives fiddle grant

Noted clawhammer banjoist and fingerstyle guitarist, Ken Perlman, has been awarded a grant through the Museum of Civilization in Ottawa to do a follow-up study on the fiddle music of Prince Edward Island. He will travel once again to PEI in the fall to collect tunes and oral histories from the traditional fiddlers in the province, with an eye towards publishing the collection in some form once it is completed.

Ken will be teaching at a number of banjo camps later this year, including the Rocky Mountain Banjo camp and the American Banjo Camp.

You can see a complete listing of his teaching engagements, and his many books, CDs and DVDs, by visiting his web site.
