Welcome to the Fiddle & Pick website!

Welcome to the new website for Fiddle & Pick. The Fiddle & Pick is home of the Musical Heritage Center of Middle Tennessee at 456 Highway 70 in Pegram, TN at (615) 646-9131). Founded by music educator and Pegram resident Gretchen Priest-May, it is a place where people old and young can come to discover the joy found in making traditional music - mainly, but not limited to, music played on fiddles, banjos, mandolins, guitars and similar instruments - and in particular, music played in the Middle Tennessee region throughout its history. In addition to affordable private and group lessons, the Fiddle & Pick will feature workshops in advanced instrumental study.

This network page will keep you informed on the latest news and events at the center. Feel free to join and network with others, whether you are a current student or not.
