Fiddlers on the Move #6

19 February 2021

Good news! We’ll have an extra this year. You can attend online Fiddlers on the Move workshops for free on Friday 19th February 2021. Four great violinists will teach – live from De Centrale, Slovenia and Sweden(!) – fiddle techniques of their country based on some tunes. You can play along in your living room with Laura Cortese, Bojan Cvetrežnik, Aurélie Dorzée and Mia Marine. With Q&A hosted by Wouter Vandenabeele, founder of the festival. Tune in from 19h till 23h (CET) on Facebook Live or YouTube!

14 – 18 April 2021

If the words strathspey and lăutărească do not sound familiar to you, save 14 till 18th April 2021 in your agenda. Violinists from all over Europe will relocate to De Centrale in Ghent (Belgium) for five days during Fiddlers on the Move (FOTM). The festival, for the 6th edition, brings great talent in a range of non-classical styles and genres, from American folk, klezmer, Arabic and Romanian to Swedish, Balkan, Scottish and Greek music. Take part in the workshops, and come listen to the concerts! Fingers crossed this 6th edition can take place in these strange times…

See you hopefully in Ghent!
