Adaptive Playing in New Situations with Tatiana Hargreaves and Friends
Saturday, March 26, 2022 from 5:00-5:50pm
Celebration Hall @ the Floyd EcoVillage
This collaborative workshop will focus on duo playing and how musicians adapt to each other’s playing depending on who we’re playing with, instrumentation, and other variable factors. We’ll demonstrate examples of folks who don’t play much together compared with folks who do play regularly together to show the importance of listening, fluidity, and flexibility when playing music in unfamiliar settings.
About the Instructor
Over the past eight years, Tatiana Hargreaves has been on the forefront of an up and coming generation of old time, bluegrass and new acoustic musicians. Since releasing her first solo album “Started Out To Ramble” in 2009, Tatiana has toured with musicians such as Dave Rawlings, Gillian Welch, Laurie Lewis, Darol Anger, and Bruce Molsky. From placing first at the Clifftop Appalachian Fiddle Contest to her bluegrass fiddling on Laurie Lewis’ GRAMMY-nominated album The Hazel And Alice Sessions, Hargreaves shows a musical fluency that flows between old time and bluegrass worlds with ease. In Tatiana’s most recent project, she joins forces with clawhammer banjo innovator Allison de Groot (Molsky’s Mountain Drifters).
As an educator, Tatiana draws upon her performing experience as well as her academic background to combine history with musical technique and stylistic commentary, engaging her students with more than just the tunes. She currently teaches bluegrass fiddle at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and has taught at music camps such as Augusta Heritage Center’s old-time week, The Swanannoa Gathering and the Rockygrass Academy. She has also presented about the history of old-time and bluegrass music at academic institutions such as Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina and El Institute Superior del Arte (ISA) in Havana, Cuba.
