Happy Farmer/Red Wing
Gavotte in G Minor
(everything in violin keys – Gavotte in G minor is in same key for violin and viola)

Group 3 – Blue Eagle, Home on the Range, Snowflake Reel
Group 2 – Snow Deer, Edelwiess, Liverpool Hornpipe
Group 1 – Old Joe Clark, Liza Jane, Boil the Cabbage
ALL GROUPS: Boil the Cabbage
-The tune listed in bold above for your group should be first priority for memorization. Anyone may join in on any of the tunes at the Fiddle Jam Session on Friday night, but each GROUP will perform one tune as a class at the Saturday concert and everyone will play Boil The Cabbage together. (the fiddle music on the concert will not be a “play-down” like the Suzuki pieces)
-If you went to Greenville in October, the Happy Farmer/Red Wing is the same version we played there.
-We anticipate that everything on the concert will be performed from memory, including Suzuki harmony parts.
-Everyone in Group 3 and 4 will participate in a LEAD SHEET CLASS on Saturday where you will learn to read chord symbols from a lead sheet and improvise chords and “backup parts” (similar to the viola parts in Millionaire’s Hoedown) that you may also use in the concert.
-The Western Flyers band will follow the students with music for concert and for dancing. Some of the additional fiddle tunes from the workshop will be played and students will be invited to “sit in with the band” if they are comfortable with the tunes.
