"The Fiddle Workshop"
A New Tuition CD From Karen Steven

This month sees the release of Karen Steven's latest CD entitled "The Fiddle Workshop." It is aimed at fiddlers wishing to expand their repertoire of tunes.

This is a double CD consisting of over 2 hours of recording.  The recording begins with all 14 tunes performed in 3 sets on fiddle (Karen Steven) and piano (Anne Taylor).  Eleven of the 14 tunes are traditional and the final 3 tunes are Karen's own compositions. Players are guided through 14 tunes in a methodical phrase by phrase format. Each phrase is repeated 3 times and the CDs are suitable for players of all abilities.

The tracks can simply be repeated if more practice is required. The tuition focuses on learning by ear and allows players to work at their own pace. 

The double CD is available at an introductory price of 12.50 inc. p&p.

For more information or to order a copy contact Karen Steven on 07748916160 or e-mail karen@karensteven.com The CD will be in shops shortly.

The recording was made possible with funding from Scotland UnLtd and Hi-Arts.

Karen also features on the new Ross Records video of Caithness, a follow-up to last years production entitled Come over the Ord.
