Announcing the North Allegheny Fiddlers & Vocal Chorale

Announcing the N.A. Fiddlers will perform at MuSic For MS 2015!

NA_FiddlersThe N.A. Fiddlers, under the direction of Dennis Morton, a string teacher within the North Allegheny School District, was organized in 2002 for students within the district interested in expanding their love and knowledge of music.

The students representing the N.A. Fiddlers are in grades 6 through 12. These fiddlers participate in a weeklong workshop during the summer months. Tunes are taught and learned in the traditional aural style, meaning by ear and without the use of written notes. Local folk musician Mark Tamsula www.appalachianmusic.net attends each workshop and presents the students with a variety of styles including Scottish, Irish, Old Timey, Scandinavian and Cajun.

On their 10 year anniversary they brought in an additional fiddler, Melinda Crawford, with Scottish background where she taught students several Scottish Fiddle tunes and their unique style.

In 2011 the fiddlers hit the recording studio and produced a professional CD at the Maywood Studios. After 3 hours in the recording studio they were able to lay down 12 fiddle tunes including Appalachian, Irish, Scottish, Kentucky and Cajun fiddle tunes.

The N.A. Fiddlers have performed at various locations throughout the North Hills area including Sherwood Oaks in Cranberry, Soergels Orchards in Wexford during their fall festival, Vincentian Home in Ross, Ice Jam in Butler County, North Pittsburgh Philharmonic at the North Hills High School, and Butler Symphony Orchestra in Butler plus many more.
