Fiddle Deis comes to Brandeis, 3/15-17


Thanks to Barbara Cassidy for alerting me to this. "Fiddle Festival at Brandeis University, Waltham, is coming up in March. Three days of workshops and performances."

What a lineup! I am posting this today because you will want to get tickets before it sells out.

Go all three days if you can, but if you cannot I highly recommend, because 100% of the musicians have either performed in my own notloB Folk Concerts series or have very close ties, going Friday night. But if you prefer jazz, Saturday looks to be the day. But if you prefer Baroque / classical. Sunday is your day.

A word of warning, unless the situation has changed, parking at Brandeis can be a challenge.

March 15-17
