This month's guest in Brittany Haas's Fiddle Styles Workshop is Tristan Clarridge. Tristan has won the Weiser, Idaho, Grand National Fiddle Championship Contest five times, and is regarded as one of the best Texas-style fiddlers of all time. He is also a pioneering and virtuosic cellist and has toured the world with Crooked Still, Darol Anger’s Republic of Strings, and many others, including his own inventive acoustic group the Bee Eaters (beeeaters.com). In the workshop with Brittany, Tristan focuses on his Texas fiddling, but in this video he switches to the cello for a duet with Brittany on the old-time tune “Julianne Johnson.” Sign up here to learn some Texas-style fiddling from one of the greats, and get access to all of Brittany's Fiddle Styles Workshop videos.
