Pop-Star’s nephew Dan, wife and two children are fortunate fellow Adelaide Hills residents. Music is part of their home, and both children show talent beyond their years with their violins.
Dan acquired a love of fiddling from his father Tony, and not surprisingly he and the young musicians were early applicants for the weekend fiddle workshop at Strathalbyn.
Pop-Star and the good Mrs Pop-Star were invitees to the climax of the weekend, a concert by performers and mentors held in the hall of Strathalbyn’s well known and loved St. Andrews Church.
It was a delightful evening to set feet a-jigging. The video of one of the pieces was kindly taken on Pop-Star’s iPhone 5 by Dan’s mother-in law Sonya.
Vivacious Adelaide Hills musician Catherine Fraser is keeping alive the delights of Irish and Scottish Fiddling music.
For a second year she has conducted a workshop for musicians young and old at the Glenbarr Camp and Conference Centre in Strathalbyn, South Australia. Guest presenter for the four day event from Oct 9 2014 was Irish fiddle expert Tim Whelan. Also assisting were musicians Hugh Gordon and Janet Gordon.
Pop-Star is grateful that there are talented musicians dedicated to the preservation of Celtic music in remote South Australia.
