Fiddle Workshop and Concert Slated for Sunburg

Exciting event coming to Sunburg on April 3

Violinists and fiddlers of all ages are welcome to attend this free fiddle workshop at Hope Lutheran Church in Sunburg, though two years experience is strongly encouraged.   Participants will learn fiddle tunes in  small groups, learn new fiddle techniques and perform in a student/teacher concert at 4 p.m.  The concert is free and open to the public.

The workshops will be led by Cristina Seaborn, St Cloud, MN, a violinist and fiddler with over thirty years of experience in symphonies, quartets, jazz ensembles, and folk/rock bands; Dempsey Schroeder,  formerly of Pennock, a fiddler with over 20 years of experience and Maggie Harp, New London, an outstanding music accompanist on piano and guitar.  

The tunes we'll be working on will be emailed out in advance of the event so  participants can learn the notes prior to coming.  Workshops will focus on "how" to play the tunes using various fiddle styles and techniques.

The workshop is free, but pre-registration is required.  Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.  For additional registration materials, email Darlene Schroeder at

Participants will receive a free book of fiddle tunes, including original compositions by Dempsey Schroeder and fiddle arrangements by Cristina Seaborn.

Sponsored by Sunburg Heritage Arts Initiative.

This activity is funded in part with a grant from the Southwest Minnesota Arts Council made possible by the voters of Minnesota, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
