Krissy Jackson is a classically trained violinist who discovered fiddle music at the age of 14. Now her diverse style of fiddling is a reflection of her many musical passions. Touring extensively around NZ and Australia Krissy is a sought after musician for her ability to slot into any style. In 2017 she sought to hone her craft with an extensive tour through Ireland, Boston, San Fransisco, Germany, Cape Breton and Prince Edward Island - studying many styles and genres from teachers around the world.

Going beyond a ‘traditional’ fiddle workshop where you often learn the tune devoid of technique, in this workshop Krissy will cover:
- some of the essential bowing techniques to create better tone.
- fiddle back-up (the ‘chop’, double stops, counterpoint in the spaces of the melody)
- improvisation (variations on a theme)
- likely a new tune or three

The workshop will be available for any string player with an emphasis on the fiddle - however cellists, viola players would be most welcome. An intermediate level of playing would be beneficial as would the ability to pick up a tune by ear.
