Overview

Expert fiddlers Brian Wicklund and April Verch team up to delve into the dynamic world of Canadian fiddling for the FiddlePal Explore Series. April is among the busiest fiddlers in Canada. Her inspired fans have long clamored for her instruction.

This highly anticipated beginning to intermediate-level book explores Canada�s rich fiddle traditions including Old Time Canadian, French Canadian, Cape Breton and M�tis. More than just a collection of great tunes, this book demystifies common ornaments and bowing patterns used in Canadian fiddling. The authors teach the simple melody to reels, jigs, hornpipes, waltzes, schottisches, airs and strathspeys and demonstrate how to create variations using the skills in the book. The play-along CD accompanying the book is great listening. An outstanding book.
