So, what is Fiddle D Dee?
Fiddle D Dee are a group of like-minded fiddle (violin in new money) players who meet once a month to teach each other a new tune. Mandolin fiddles, recorder fiddles, guitar fiddles, bass fiddles – all things vaguely folk …
It’s as simple as that really; Fiddle D Dee are a mixed ability from beginners (“Which way up do I hold it?”) to pretty accomplished. But above all, what they all are is friendly. It’s a great way to start or enjoy or return to playing with others.
Mostly what is played is folk – but if you something you want to bring to the group that’s not folk – that’s fine too. They love a good tune to learn!
Mostly they teach and learn by ear – though usually whoever’s leading the workshop will relent and give out printed stuff at some point.
There’s easy parking near their current venue of The Bridge Inn – ask and they’ll share details! Fiddle D Dee are nursing a hope to get some pieces ready to take out to some of the local folk sessions – come and join in! The more the merrier!
Fiddle D Dee welcome violin/fiddle players but also recorders, guitars, whistles, mandolins – pretty much anything really… They’d love to see you at their next meeting.
