The fiddle camp I mentioned has the following contact:
Valley of the Moon Scottish Fiddling School
Forestville, CA 95436, USA
It was featured on CBS Sunday Morning about 6 months ago, so although I have
not been in the past, I have seen how pretty it is. You can camp or sign up
for cabin space. Meals are provided. It is a week long camp with daily
workshops on Scottish, Cape Breton and Shetland fiddling, Cape Breton Step
Dancing, Gaelic singling, piano/guitar accompaniment, etc, etc. I don't have
a brochure with dates on this years' camp, which I do plan on attending, but
it usually is the last part of August. It is very popular and fills up fast.
There is also an organization with a newsletter:
Scottish Fiddling Revival
1938 Rose Villa Street
Pasadena, California, 91107
The membership is very inexpensive ($10 for individual) although I didn't
hear from them for about 3 months..... The first newsletter I received has
some interesting articles on interpreting pipe music for fiddle.
Also, Alasdair Fraser will be playing at the Longs Peak Highland Games in
early September. This is in Estes Park Colorado in early September. I got
interested in Scottish fiddling by seeing him play there. He is a two time
Scottish National Fiddling Champion, and teaches about the music as he plays
it. His enthusiasm for the music is quite infectious. And if you've ever
wanted to see the autumn aspen colors in the high country of Colorado, this
is a great time to vacation there.
At the fiddlers house, everyone dances.
