Dick Solberg, Sun Mountain Fiddler

  • Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts 2736 New York 30 Gloversville, NY, 12078 United States

Born in New York City, Dick Solberg was trained classically on the piano and the violin, but when he encountered "fiddling" in styles like old-timey, bluegrass, Celtic, and Cajun, he was hooked. His professional career started in 1976, when he fiddled on the streets in places like Ann Arbor, Michigan; Provincetown, Cape Cod; and Coconut Grove, Florida; it has continued across America, in the Caribbean (34 winter seasons in St. Thomas) and at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland; on the Great Wall of China; and the American University in Cairo.

Admission is $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
