Traditional French Canadian Session

Fiddleheads in Perth will be the home of a Traditional French Canadian session in the months to come to be held one Sunday afternoon a month. To help get us ready for the session we are offering a study session to learn traditional French Canadian tunes to be lead by accomplished fiddler Dawson Girdwood of Perth, who has studied with legendary fiddler Jean Carignan. The Study sessions will tentatively be held from 1-3 p.m. preceding the regular 3 p.m. session, one or two Sundays a month (frequency to be decided as a group at the first meeting). The location is yet to be determined but will be in Perth as close as possible to Fiddleheads so we can easily go from one to the other. Price for the study sessions is $10 per session attended. The fee will end once we take the session to the pub. If you are interested in joining us for the study sessions, please contact me, Janice Parton, by email or by phone at 613-256-6463, by September 6, 2007. First study session will tentatively be held on Sunday, September 23, 2007 at 1 p.m. (submitted by Janice Parton)
