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 over 170 videos for you to learn from. 60 new ones were uploaded on March 7, 2020. You have the option to subscribe and get access to all the videos or you can rent individual videos (for 3 days) or you can purchase individual videos and have access to those for life. Purchase/Rentals also include sheet music and backing tracks for many of the tunes.
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.
