The Handmade Music School presents Repertoire Builder III with Earl White on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 at 3:00 EST. The workshop will be presented via Crowdcast as part of our Handmade at Home online series. Cost is $1 to $100 (suggested donation of $15).

Are you feeling stuck and tired of playing the same old tunes? Here’s another round of fabulous old time tunes. These tunes are fun to play and lively. Join us!

Fiddlin’ Earl White has been a prominent figure in the old time music and dance community for more than 40 years. He is one of “FEW” Black Americans playing and perpetuating the music that was once an important part of black culture and black communities across the US. He is an original and founding member of the famed Greengrass Cloggers, and received his first fiddle in 1975.

Fiddlin’ Earl White’s energetic, rhythmic, driving style is attributed to many years of dancing with the Greengrass Cloggers to the delights of Tommy Jarrell, the Highwoods Stringband, the Plank Road Stringband, and the Horseflies, to name a few. His fiddling is as heartfelt as his dancing of earlier years.

Fiddlin’ Earl White has played with many of the finest old time musicians in the country. Under the guise of “The Too Wet to Plow Stringband”, “Early Night and the Daytimers”, “The Dukes of Earl”, “Sweet Bama”, “The Earl White Band”, and the “Earl White Stringband”, and the dynanmic duo as Adrienne Davis and Earl White. His bands have graced many audiences with their superb music as workshops or concerts.
