World Fiddle Day St. John's Celebration!

May 21, 2016, 1:30pm

Arts and Culture Centre - St. John's

Did you know there is a World Fiddle Day? Countries across the globe as well as other Canadian cities will celebrate World Fiddle Day on May 21, 2016. The St. John’s Arts and Culture Centre (ACC) is planning a free fiddle tune session for Newfoundland and Labrador to represent our wonderful fiddling community and traditions. In the afternoon of May 21 anyone who plays, teaches, or has a love of just listening to fiddle music, are invited to bring their string instruments and join in the fun. We want as many people as possible to play three songs together as one giant fiddle army. The songs that have been chosen are "Mussels in the Corner", "Pretty Little Mary", and "Auntie Mary". Sheet music will be provided! In a happy coincidence, fiddling sensations Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy will be in St. John’s with their family to kick off a provincial Arts and Culture Centre tour. MacMaster and Leahy will make a special appearance to the afternoon event to celebrate World Fiddle Day and to jam with all the local musicians! WHO: Anyone who plays or enjoys listening to fiddle, violin or bowed-string-instruments WHAT: Free fiddle tune session WHEN: Saturday, May 21, 2016 WHERE: Concourse, Arts and Culture Centre St. John’s TIME: Arrive 1:30 pm (for a 2:00 pm start). Event ends at 3:00 pm TUNES: "Mussels in the Corner", "Pretty Little Mary", "Auntie Mary" SPECIAL GUESTS: Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy as well as invited local fiddle musicians This is a FREE event celebrating World Fiddle Day and is open to the public to come listen and any fiddling and string musicians who wish to participate and are able to play the three selected songs. Sheet music will be provided and will be posted on the ACC website, facebook and twitter. The Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy provincial tour will start that evening at 8:00 pm. Tickets for that performance $30 each (HST and service charge included) and can be purchased at the box office by calling 729-3900 or online at www.artsandculturecentre.com.
