The Handmade Music School presents a Banjo and Fiddle Duets Workshop with Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves on Saturday, January 26, 2019 from 3:00-5:00pm. Cost is $30. In this workshop we will explore the different ways that the banjo and fiddle work together.

We will spend time separated by instrument, and then some time working all together.
