Valley of the Moon Scottish Fiddling School


August 23 - 31, 2024



See you there!!!

The Valley of the Moon Scottish Fiddling School in the northern California redwoods invites you the 40th Edition week of intensive study, recreation, and good times with people who share an interest in the music and dance traditions of Scotland and beyond.

Alasdair Fraser, director of the camp, excels in expressing the beauty and energy of traditional Scottish fiddling and in creating exciting new music informed by that tradition. A gifted teacher, Alasdair has inspired legions of accomplished and aspiring musicians through his concerts, recordings, and workshops. At his influential summer camps - the renowned Valley of the Moon Scottish Fiddling School in California, his fiddle course at Sabhal mor Ostaig Gaelic College on Scotland’s Isle of Skye, Sierra Fiddle Camp, and most recently, Crisol de Cuerda in Spain - Fraser uses the power of music and dance to create and enhance community.

Join us in the beautiful setting of Camp Campbell in the Santa Cruz mountains, where string players of all ages and levels of musical experience choose from daily workshops on Scottish and related fiddle styles. Additional classes are offered in dancing and singing, as well as piano, guitar and rhythm.
