Berkshire Strings Workshops: Neil Pearlman and Alden Robinson

Called “a tremendous pianist” on BBC Radio Scotland, Neil Pearlman is renowned for his unique approach to Celtic music on the piano. Rooted in traditional Cape Breton styles, Neil’s accompaniment expands traditional music with a broad palette of techniques from jazz and other genres. An accomplished Cape Breton step dancer as well, Neil grew up in the family band Highland Soles. He has performed with Natalie MacMaster, Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas, among many others.

Neil will be offering a piano workshop on traditional accompaniment at 3pm.

Alden Robinson has been described as a “powerhouse fiddler” by the Barre-Montpelier Times Argus. He gravitated towards Irish traditional music in college, studying fiddle in Cork, Ireland. He performs regularly throughout the U.S. with the Maine-based Irish band The Press Gang. He also plays regularly for dances and teaches at music camps. He recently served as an Arts Envoy with the U.S. State Department in Lithuania.

Alden will lead a fiddle workshop, teach a traditional tune and share tips and techniques at 3pm.

Both workshops are at Berkshire Strings Studio. Limited seating and parking are available for these workshops. Advanced reservations necessary, no walk-ins. Please carpool.

Neil and Alden will be performing at 8pm that same evening. Please see our event listing under "Music" for more information and ticket links.
