Artichoke Community Music online class led by Annie Sea, $50 for both classes, $25 for one class.

Loopers of all levels are welcome. We will have the space to split the group into two stations at this venue, so beginners and more experienced loopers will be able to practice with others at their level.

FAQs:
Q: Do I need to bring my own looper?
A: No - I will set up my two boss loopers (RC 30 and 300). Most loopers work in a similar way, and this allows us to be efficient with the class time. If you are interested in more in-depth help with your own looper, I also offer private lessons.

Q: Should I bring my instrument/s?
A: Yes - please do! It works best if you have something that we can connect via a 1/4‘‘ input or play into a vocal mic. I will bring my guitar and various noise-makers.

Q: Can I sign up if I don‘t have a looper or have never tried looping before?
A: Yes - loopers and the first-time loop-curious are all welcome. We will be able to have a stat

We are starting up in-person sing arounds, but Golden Link will still be hosting virtual sing-arounds on Zoom.

Virtual sing arounds actually provide some advantages over in-person sing arounds as well. We‘ve seen participation from people around the United States and around the world. Even for people who live close by, sometimes travel to our in-person sing arounds can be an impediment to attending, especially on work nights. So, due to the success of the current Zoom sing arounds, we plan to continue the virtual sing arounds in addition to the in-person sing arounds even when things return to normal. This would allow many more people to participate than we see in our in-person sing arounds.

Nov 23 (Tue): virtual sing around, Leader: Vern Lindberg
Nov 30 (Tue): member spotlight sing around, Leader: Bill Chandler

Artichoke Community Music online class led by David Ingerson, $100 for six classes, Drop-in price $20.

*** This is an online class conducted via ZOOM. The link will be provided by the teacher prior to the start date via email. ***

This course will begin with an overview of eight different song traditions in their historical and artistic contexts and with recorded examples from masters of each type. The next five sessions will delve deeper into four of the more important traditions, going backward through history (with the most accessible and easiest first). In each of those sessions we will work on learning (from a recording of a master) one or two of that type of song.

Those four types are: pub songs, traditional anglo-Irish songs, rhythmic Irish language songs, and the old arhythmic sean-nós songs. (If participants would rather not do the sean-nós songs in Irish, an English language translation could be substituted, if necessary.)
