Every Sunday, hosted by Patrick Connell and Kaden Hurst, $15 drop-in.

Ever wonder what makes a bluegrass jam sound organized and deliberate, like a band, even when it‘s just a casual jam? The essence of bluegrass is informality, but there is something inherently magical about how the players organize, differentiating it from being a twang-heavy song circle.

We cover kick-offs, turnarounds, soloing, and the general principles of leading a song within a group of friends or strangers.

Of course, we always end up learning new material in a session, but the focus is more on what to do with the song once we‘ve learned it, sharpening our ability to play it within a group of other bluegrass musicians, in a way that is compatible with other folks‘ skill sets.

Bring your instrument and an open-mind, and leave with the tools to be a bluegrass champ.

Blues harp from the heart -- Playing the harmonica really does strengthen your abs and improve your breathing. Probably the only instrument you play by inhaling, it is magical and mystical. Also, it’s one of the most affordable, portable and intimate of instruments, a friend to carry wherever you go. And it is a key element of America’s fabulous musical tradition, the blues. But it ain’t easy! All levels welcome, including beginners, as long as you are willing (and happy) to practice daily.

Artichoke Community Music online class led by Martha Stone, $100 for six classes.

You‘re going to need a 5 string banjo, electronic tuner, capo, and music stand. No experience is necessary. We will use tablature at the beginning, but you do not need to read music to play clawhammer banjo.

Clawhammer refers to a rhythm which originates from a right-hand technique (aka Bum Ditty) and is the hardest part about playing this style of banjo. Once you get it (let’s say Day 1), the rest is much easier! Hopefully, your ultimate goal is to go to a jam and play clawhammer. We will be focusing on the skills you need to play with other musicians in a jam setting.

Martha is offering this class on-line. Details for participating in the class will be provided by the teacher before the class begins...

Every Sunday, hosted by Patrick Connell and Kaden Hurst, $15 drop-in.

Ever wonder what makes a bluegrass jam sound organized and deliberate, like a band, even when it‘s just a casual jam? The essence of bluegrass is informality, but there is something inherently magical about how the players organize, differentiating it from being a twang-heavy song circle.

We cover kick-offs, turnarounds, soloing, and the general principles of leading a song within a group of friends or strangers.

Of course, we always end up learning new material in a session, but the focus is more on what to do with the song once we‘ve learned it, sharpening our ability to play it within a group of other bluegrass musicians, in a way that is compatible with other folks‘ skill sets.

Bring your instrument and an open-mind, and leave with the tools to be a bluegrass champ.
