      The lesson moves right along without sacrificing time on the difficult parts to over-teach the easy parts. Also, Q&A time is way helpful.

      What was your favorite part of the performance?Rayna, you are such a good teacher. It's easy to follow your demo and the best part is having you play the tune in regular speed, moderate, and the slow bare bones. It's a great method and makes an impossible sounding tune accessible. Do this again soon! (I was in your class at swannanoa a couple of years ago.)

Rayna Gellert grew up in a musical family, and has spent most of her life immersed in the sounds of rural stringband music, heartfelt gospel songs, and old ballads. After honing her fiddle skills playing at jam sessions and square dances, Rayna fell into a life of traveling and performing. Her fiddle albums are widely celebrated in the old-time music community, and she has recorded with a host of musicians in a variety of styles – including Robyn Hitchcock, Tyler Ramsey, Sara Watkins, Loudon Wainwright III, John Paul Jones, and Abigail Washburn. From 2003 through 2008, Rayna was a member of the acclaimed stringband Uncle Earl, with whom she released two albums on Rounder Records and toured like mad. In 2010, she met songwriter Scott Miller, and they began performing and recording together. Her most recent release is a collection of original and traditional songs titled "Workin's Too Hard" (StorySound Records 2017).
