Have you ever wanted to play and sing with a group around a campfire? Do you have an instrument in the closet that you started to learn to play but then life got in the way?
Ozark Folkways in Winslow will host a one-day Mountain Music Workshop for Beginners on August 11 where you can learn to play and sing well-known folk classics in an encouraging atmosphere.
Select which instrument you will bring for a one hour focused break-out session: guitar, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, bass guitar, fiddle, or percussion.
The workshop will conclude with a group recording of songs to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Smithsonian Folkways Records Music of the Ozark Mountains which was recorded in August 1958 in Delaney, Arkansas. Each participant will receive a copy of the recording we make.
Workshop fee is $50. NOTE: At checkout, you will have the opportunity to add a note to your order when you enter your payment information. Please indicate there what instrument or instruments you are primarily interested in.
This will be a one day folk music workshop for beginners open to all ages.
