The Saratoga Springs High School Fiddle Club meets weekly to learn traditional fiddle tunes by ear. This DF-YO! grant will allow 14-18 members to travel during their April 2015 spring break to Ireland in order to study with the 2011 All-Ireland Under-18 Fiddle Champion, Rebecca McCarthy-Kent. The students will also perform in a joint high school concert and participate in several evening concerts. The DFO hopes this will be the first of many grants awarded to young traditional musicians in the capital district.
