Bloomington fiddler Joe Dawson (1928-2012) carried and shared a treasured repertoire of traditional Monroe and Brown County old-time music. He learned these fiddle tunes from his grandfather, as well as other family members and neighbors, while living on the Elkinsville-area family farm, which is now beneath the waters of Lake Monroe. The workshop leaders will explore his legacy, introduce his music, and teach some of his tunes to all who would like to learn them. Bring your musical instrument. Audio recording is welcome, for personal use only (no posting online please). For more on Joe Dawson, see https://greylarsen.com/
The event is part of the upcoming Bloomington Early Music Festival, which runs from May 18-27 in multiple performance locations, see http://blemf.org/
