“No one deserves this honour more then my friend & mentor Calvin Vollrath. My description of Calvin is simply this ”There are the rest of us fiddle players, then there's Calvin, he quite simply has no peers!".

Camp Calvin/CV Tuesday Online Workshops - 2024

The 4th edition of CV TOW is growing…. since we will not be holding a Virtual Winter Camp Calvin January 2024, we have decided to combine the two events and are excited to announce a revised CV TOW for 2024.

Which means we have invited Camp Calvin instructors to the 2024 edition. We are excited to announce that Mark Sullivan, Daniel Gervais, April Verch and Alex Kusturok will offer workshops on a variety of technical aspects to improve your playing. We have a schedule made up when each of these guest instructors will appear. Calvin will teach the other four lessons.

CV TOW is an 1-hr online group fiddle lesson offered on the first Tuesday of the month for 8 months from February - November, with a recess for summer.
