Ed has taught many workshops and lessons, including the Blazin Fiddles camp in Beauly, Scotland, Maine Fiddle Camp, Swannanoa Celtic Week, and ran the fiddle course at Ohio Scottish Arts School for 16 years. He currently teaches fiddle in Portland Maine. A judge of many Scottish fiddle competitions (including 4 US Nationals), Ed has also played contra dances, and other styles of music. He writes the music column for Scottish Life magazine. Neil Pearlman is emerging as one of the traditional music scene’s most innovative young artists. His 2011 CD was praised by critics from Huffington Post to Jazz Weekly to the Portland Press Herald (“dazzling piano chops”). His unique approach seamlessly blends Cape Breton piano traditions with jazz harmony and funk/rock grooves. The result is a exciting new sound that remains true to its traditional roots. An accomplished Cape Breton step dancer, Neil grew up playing music and dancing in the family band Highland Soles. He has taught piano at Alasdair Fraser’s Sierra Fiddle Camp, Maine Fiddle Camp, and Rocky Mountain Fiddle Camp, and in addition to touring with Ed Pearlman and Highland Soles, Neil has played with Alasdair Fraser, Natalie MacMaster, Mark O’Connor, Frank Ferrel, Maeve Gilchrist, and Mike Vass.

Explore a brief history of the Pueblo textile tradition from the ancestral period to the present with expert Pueblo fiber artist Louie García.  Louie will share textiles from his own collection to examine Pueblo weaving styles and designs.  Participants will have the option to use their own hand spun to warp a frame loom to weave a traditional Pueblo hair tie using the warp-faced weaving technique.  By the end of the workshop, students will have two completed projects and have a deeper understanding and appreciation for Pueblo textiles. Don’t miss Intro to Pueblo Spinning in February to create yarns for Pueblo weaving. Louie García is Tiwa and Piro of the southern Pueblos of Socorro del Sur and Ysleta del Sur from the El Paso, Texas area.  He began learning the art of Pueblo weaving from his grandfather as a young boy and teaches with the hope that future generations of Pueblo people will carry on this ancient art. Another of Louie’s goals is to share the basic techniques with a larger audience in an effort to inform, promote, and create appreciation for this ancient art. He uses a variety of materials, including his own home-grown cotton, wool, feathers, and natural plant fibers such as yucca as well as synthetic fibers for traditional Pueblo spinning, weaving, knitting, crochet and embroidery work.
