A Masterfully Soulful Fiddler
“Her fiddling is technically spot-on, yet elegantly earthy, her bow merrily bouncing along the strings, as though unable to resist joining the dance.” -Boston Globe
The Welsh CrwthLecture/Presentation
An ancient and rare fiddle with a hauntingly medieval sound, the Crwth was played by bards from the 11th century to the 19th century. Emerald presents a variety of tunes on the Crwth from traditional Welsh Songs to contemporary originals – exploring the 21st century possibilities on the Crwth.
As skilled performer, a champion fiddler, and an avid historian, Emerald is deeply passionate, experienced and knowledgeable about presenting the tradition in an engaging way. She teaches one-on-one lessons in person and online from her home in Gloucester, Massachusetts. She also leads workshops and lectures in Fiddle, Crwth and Stepdance.
