Fiddle and Banjo Clinic with Marc Rennard (fiddle) and Andy McCune (banjo)
Saturday February 18th 2:00-4:00 pm
Free 2 hour clinic on how banjo and fiddle can work together to compliment one another (a la Flatt and Scruggs style duets) or just as instruments in the band. This clinic is hands on so bring your instrument.
Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced players who want to improve on their ability to musically accompany (or play back-up with) other players when jamming together.
Andy McCune plays banjo with the Titan Valley Warheads and teaches banjo and mandolin here in Tucson.
Marc Rennard recently returned to town after a long period of playing and doing fiddle repair in the St. Louis area. Many will remember him as the fine fiddler for Tucson’s iconic Summer Dog band. He recently brought the band back together to record an excellent fiddle CD, now awaiting release.

The Desert Bluegrass Association, partnering with the Chicago Store, offers a series of workshops (we call them clinics) led by talented professional musicians with proven teaching success.
Hands-on sessions are offered on throughout the year on each bluegrass instrument (banjo, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, bass, dobro). Sessions on singing bluegrass harmonies, song writing, care of instruments and setup, jam techniques and etiquette, music theory, and sessions with multiple instruments also are offered.
Participants get to know local musicians and where they are performing, as well as receiving valuable instruction. Many follow up with individual lessons.
The sessions are free to attendees.
