Shipley Center plans fiddle, accordion concert this weekend

SEQUIM — Fiddle jamming and an accordion social will occupy Shipley Center on Saturday and Sunday.

Washington Old Time Fiddlers Association members will meet and perform Saturday at Shipley Center, 921 E. Hammond St.

The schedule includes open jamming from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., a business meeting at 11 a.m. and performance by members from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The performance is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome.

A group fiddle lesson for members will be taught by Derek Stallman from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., with a focus on bowing patterns and exercises, fiddle scales, rhythms and learning by ear. Member lessons are free.

The Washington Old Time Fiddlers is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving, promoting and perpetuating the art of old-time fiddle music and associated arts and skills.

Accordion players, enthusiasts and dancers will gather for an afternoon of music at the Sequim Accordion Social from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at Shipley Center.

Players of all levels are encouraged to bring their accordion and play up to three pieces.

The intent of the social is to have a supportive and friendly atmosphere in which players can play and everyone can enjoy some great music.

Admission is by donation ($2 to $3 is suggested). The featured player for the second half of the afternoon is Lyle Schaefer, who has played professionally for more than 50 years, playing for all kinds of venues, organizations and dance clubs.

The program will feature show tunes from the musicals of the 1940s and into the 1970s.
