Bonus Video: Tessa Lark Teaches Bluegrass Fiddle to Gil Shaham and Laurie Niles

June 29, 2020, 10:41 PM · Violinist Tessa Lark shows concert violinist Gil Shaham and I how to do a little bluegrass fiddlin'!

After Sunday's episode of Gilharmonic on Violinist.com, Gil and I were wondering if Tessa could stick around and teach us a little bluegrass. Well she did! Tessa shows us how to play a little bit of "Boil Them Cabbage Down" and "Whiskey Before Breakfast" - and stick around until the end, when Tessa plays us her virtuoso fiddle rendition!

To watch the entire episode, as well as other previous episodes of Gilharmonic on Violinist.com, please click here. Join us at 11 a.m. PT, 2 p.m. ET this Sunday for the next LIVE episode of Gilharmonic, featuring master teacher Kurt Sassmannshaus, U.K. violinist Roberts Balanas (who made that great Elton John viral video!) and student Claire Lee, 10, from Connecticut. See you then! Subscribe to Violinist.com's Youtube Channel to receive notices, and "like" Gil Shaham and Violinist.com on Facebook - the show is live-streamed in all three places!
