This class will focus on learning repertoire from Fiddlers around the state of Kentucky such as John Salyer, Clyde Davenport, Doc Roberts, Owen "Snake" Chapman, Estill Bingham, and more! Tunes are taught aurally first and then with TABs afterwards to fill in the gaps. We will learn basic approaches to each tune followed by a more melodic approach.Students can pick and choose which classes they want to sign up for.
Prerequisites: Students need to know the basics of clawhammer rhythm and be comfortable with various clawhammer techniques such as pull-offs, hammer-ons, slides, and drop thumb.
Help us get in tune by registering early!To support our teachers and better accommodate the needs of our classes, we ask that students register at least 24 hours in advance of the class, lesson, and/or workshop.
Caleb James Hall
CLAWHAMMER BANJO, FIDDLE*
Originally from Denver, Caleb started out at Swallow Hill in the Quinlan Café as the Bar Manager. Then a mixture of luck and the right timing led him to teaching beginner fiddle and taking over the core clawhammer banjo classes. While he currently lives outside of Colorado, you can catch him virtually teaching students across the country through his role with Swallow Hill. When he is not working, he can be found around a table of friends playing Dungeons and Dragons.
First Concert: Red Hot Chili Peppers with Stone Temple Pilots at Fiddler’s Green
What song could you listen to all day long? “Love and Chains” by Vivian Leva and Riley Calcagno

What is your favorite thing about Swallow Hill, or your favorite Swallow Hill memory? I love the community!
