Coviddle Tunes, an online celebration of Fiddle Tunes, was a weeklong event from June 26 to July 3, 2020, with workshops, concerts, jams, and dances, featuring faculty from the Fiddle Tunes 2020 roster and previous years.
Three special workshops exploring Black contributions to American fiddle traditions were featured, presented by Ben Hunter, Jerron Paxton, and Joe Seamons.
