SUNDAY MARCH 18th
Student have the option of signing up for either the dance or vocal workshop for $25 each or $40 for both. The concert will follow that evening.
3pm workshop 1 : Old Time Harmony Singing
4pm workshop 2: Claw Hammer Banjo
Old-Time Harmony Singing - Using Carter Family-style harmonies as a jumping off place, we will work with three part singing in this beautiful style. Finding harmony lines that sometimes weave around the melody, sometimes cross or create unisons, students will develop a better ability to hear and find parts, as well as learn what gives these harmonies their particular old-time country sound, and power. No singing experience necessary
Clawhammer Banjo - What is that rhythmic whomp that makes clawhammer banjo so funky? Evie Ladin marries melody, harmony & rhythm in a distinctive style that drives tunes along, and gives depth to songs. A patient and experienced teacher, Evie aims to give all levels of players something to chew on. Students should have the basic bum-diddy and be ready to learn some tunes and licks.
