CONCERT PROGRAM

An hour long musical presentation featuring fiddle tunes from around the world, sing alongs, storytelling and great piano playing. We play (and demonstrate) the journey that music can be, both personally and culturally. We can follow up with some folk dancing and/or question and answer session, depending on the dynamics, age and size of the group.

Please call 434-974-1488 or contact Laura Light at laurafiddle@gmail.com for booking information.

THE BOY, THE CAT, AND THE MAGIC FIDDLE

An hour of musical storytelling. This program takes the children on a musical adventure, using the fiddle as a means of performing magic. Along the way, children learn the power of music to touch others emotionally, that things aren't always what they seem, and that they, too, have the power of music in them. Ages 3 - 8.

Please call 434-974-1488 or contact Laura Light at laurafiddle@gmail.com for booking information.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FIDDLE AND A VIOLIN?

This program explores fiddle styles from around the world and the history and nature of folk music. Drawn from Laura's experiences playing many types of fiddle music and her travels in Sweden, France, South America, Mexico, and South Africa, it is both a performance and an overview of traditional music styles. This program can also be modified to be a workshop for string players interested in fiddle styles, ornimentation, and improvisation. Can also include a discussion of the business of music. Ages 10 - 18. Great for school music programs.

Please call 434-974-1488 or contact Laura Light at laurafiddle@gmail.com for booking information.

SONGWRITING FOR EVERYONE!

This program does just what it says, everyone gets involved composing tunes and songs. Laura and George are both prolific composers and songwriters and love to help others get started. Ages 12-21, a great program for high school music/humanities courses.

Please call 434-974-1488 or contact Laura Light at laurafiddle@gmail.com for booking information.
