Calvin Vollrath is a master fiddler, performer, instructor & recording artist that has compiled many fiddle lessons on video for fiddlers to learn some great tunes and techniques to help them be better fiddlers and broaden their repertoire. This site has well over 100 videos for you to start with & every 3 months, we will be adding new videos & sheet music to each collection.
The tunes in this collection are from the Métis tradition. Métis is the french word for mixed blood. The tunes can be quite crooked, which means they don't follow the standard meter that we might be used to. Not all of these tunes are crooked though. This music has a lot of drive and is built to make you tap your toes and make you want to dance.
