The Chicago Scottish Fiddle Camp is a weekend workshop for beginning to intermediate fiddlers. In its inaugural year it will take place on August 25 & 26 at Heritage Hall at the Scottish Home in Riverside, featuring group classes in Scottish fiddling and country dancing, a faculty concert, and a concluding performance by all students for the residents of The Scottish Home.

Students should have moderate experience playing any style of music on the violin, and should have an interest in (but not necessarily experience with) Scottish music. There is no tuition (though free-will donations are accepted). Please email Tim to reserve a spot.
