$349 - $679 TOTAL WORKSHOP COST

In Clelia’s Fiddle I class we will explore some basic and recognizable Old Time fiddle tunes. We will spend a fair amount of time listening, and then we will approach each phrase with comfort and ease. We will learn tunes in the key of G, D, and A. It is encouraged to bring a recording device and/or video. Clelia will take her time with the class and make sure everyone goes away from the weekend knowing at least one tune!

Required Class Materials: Come with a fiddle in good working order, a recording device, a tuning device, and a spirit of good fun.

Class Level: Advanced Beginner

Clelia Stefanini has heard Old Time Music since birth. Her parents, Rafe Stefanini and Nikki Lee, took her to many music events where she undoubtedly assimilated the sound and true tone of this music. At 14, she decided she wanted to learn the fiddle, and Rafe was only happy to teach her. Now, 15 years later, she has become one of the best traditional Old Time Fiddle players in the country. She has won top prizes in many fiddle and band contests all throughout the South, including 1st place at The Appalachian String Band festival in Clifftop, WV in 2013 and was the TN Valley Traditional Fiddle Champion in 2017 and 2015.

Clelia performs in a duo with her father, Rafe, and most recently recorded a CD with The Immigrant Band (John Doyle, John Herrmann, Eamon O’Leary, and Rafe). Clelia has developed into an accomplished teacher as well. Her fiddling has been described as “Zeus hurling musical thunderbolts from Mt. Olympus,” which only partly describes a musician that, although impactful and powerful, contains a growing subtlety and nuance that betrays her young age and appearance.
