Winona Fiddlers

The Winona Fiddlers were fortunate to have Liz Knowles, fiddler for Cherish the Ladies, who performed up at St. Mary's Page Theater series on Monday, March 16, provide a fiddle workshop.  Liz was also the lead fiddler for Riverdance for a couple of years.  It was an excellent workshop focusing primarily on some key ornamentations vital to traditional Irish fiddle music.  The Winona Fiddlers are grateful to St. Mary's University for providing this opportunity.
