Historic Red Hook Presents Exploring the Wilds: The Violin in Early America

Historic Red Hook Presents Exploring the Wilds: The Violin in Early America

In an era before recordings, live music was prevalent, and the violin was king. The same instrument was used in barns and at royal courts, for rustic country dances and for fashionable classical concerts—and the same players would do it all. Join national fiddle champion Tim Macdonald to enjoy a huge range of early violin music, from wild dance tunes to plaintive laments to sophisticated sonatas, and learn how professional musicians competed to be the best players, teachers, improvisers, composers, and even dancers, all at the same time.
