Fiddlehead Field

Fiddlehead Field is a collaborative venture that seeks to bring the community together around music and gardening. With the goal of getting lively music and fresh food spread wide and far along the Mad River, we teach music lessons and host summer programs that bring kids into the fold of the rich farming and music traditions of this region. Founder Jessye Bartlett is passionate about spreading music throughout her community. As a fiddle-player herself who began playing at the age of three, Ms. Bartlett currently teaches violin lessons out of her home in Thornton and volunteers in three different school districts teaching folk dancing in elementary schools. Ms. Bartlett is the fiddler for the montly Wentworth Square Dance, and she started a Kids' Music Camp out of her home in 2015 with neighbor Brook White, which has grown steadily over the past several years.
