FLU (Fiddlers of Lawrence University) is a low-key, fun fiddling group for anyone who wants to jam, learn tunes, and expand their musical comfort zone! We meet on Wednesday nights at 6 pm, bring in guest performers, and perform a few times a term. Check out our website for more info: http://fiddlersoflawrence.weebly.com/ and our Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCL9xXMTvfkQdQ7VQMPrZEHA
As I did not have much exposure beforehand, getting the opportunity to play the violin in different contexts has really opened up my perceptions of what music’s existence can mean to people. It is really fun to jam with friends and not be afraid of making mistakes, because messing up can turn into a fiddle tune in of itself!
People interested in joining or sitting in can contact Trace Hybertson (firstname.lastname@example.org), Maggie Anderson (email@example.com) or Rehanna Rexroat (firstname.lastname@example.org). Participation is not limited to violinists; people have played on cello, banjo, guitar, mandolin and flute! Typically, we meet on Friday evenings, and we have a Facebook group for communication.
