Tony Becker of San Jose, California and Mark Wallis of Gloucester, England host this Transatlantic session for all interested parties on Wednesdays at 8:00 PM UK time. For American visitors, please note we are now all on standard ‘winter‘ time, so that is 12:00 PM Pacific in the USA.

Open to all who play traditional Irish music and It has the obvious limitations of Zoom in that only one musician can play at a time. But we go round the ‘room’ and take it in turns - no pressure though and the baton can be passed if you just want to listen. We just play for a couple of hours.

On a good day we have a variety of instruments from pipes to Melodeon, banjo to fiddle and it can be a good way to pick up tunes. It is very friendly and we welcome everyone. The only criterion is we try to stick to Irish traditional.

Alexa Wiley
Alexa loves metaphor and has purposefully searched out that which is unpredictable and wild about herself.

Megan Cronin Tucker
Portland based multi-instrumentalist Megan Cronin Tucker plays music at its most vulnerable, showing the tender underbelly of the human experience.

Ernie Tong
His music is a unique blend of folk and jazz, resulting in a sound that is truly all his own.

Don Wheatley
Don has been playing music, mostly folk & blues, original & covers. He can’t read a lick of music, plays entirely by ear, and most of the time he could not tell you what note, chord or in which key he’s playing. But it seems to work for him most of the time.

Larry Lotz and Steve Wilson
Larry Lotz is an Americana country-folk style singer and songwriter. He will be joined by Steve Wilson on resonator guitar at this show.

Artichoke Community Music class led by Arlo Leach, $120 for six weeks.

Everybody loves seeing a jug band, but there’s often more to this fun music than meets the eye. In this class we’ll dig into original jug band recordings from the 1920s-30s, learn about the artists who created them and practice building arrangements that reflect their unique style.

Players of all skill levels will have a role in our arrangements. If you already play a standard instrument like guitar, mandolin or harmonica, or a homemade instrument like jug, washboard or washtub bass, please bring it. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn a homemade instrument if you like. Depending on how the class goes, we might conclude with a performance of some kind.

PLEASE NOTE: We will skip Thanksgiving (November 23rd) and extend the class to December 14th.

Artichoke Community Music workshop led by Avery Hill, $20. Many of us enjoy participating in jams, but have you ever considered leading a song at a jam? Learning to count folks in, and keeping time so everyone ends together, too, deepens the musical skills you already have and provides such a fulfilling musical challenge for those who love to play with others. This workshop will model for you all the skills and steps you need, and guide you through trying it out yourself! What to bring: An instrument to lead with - strumming instruments are great for this workshop, including ukulele, guitar, mandolin or banjo. Whatever you are most comfortable with. If you have a specific song you‘d like to try leading, please bring a copy for yourself plus at least 5 copies to share. This is not required - you‘re welcome to choose from our examples, or just observe and learn from others trying it out. A good attitude! We‘ll be learning by doing, supporting each other as we engage with a new skill set. Note: Everyone is welcome to stick around for the monthly ukulele jam that begins at 2 pm, regardless of what instrument you play.

We play songs that pull from a variety of genres, songwriters, and musical traditions, especially those you won‘t hear at other ukulele jams. For example, we’ve got everything from folk favorites from The Carter Family to an ukulele adaption of “The Wind Cries Mary”, by Jimi Hendrix. We’ll play “Bring Me Little Water Sylvie”, by early 20th century songwriter Leadbelly, and then “Closer to Fine” by late 20th century rockers The Indigo Girls.

Songbooks provided. For a preview or to download / print ahead of time, join Avery‘s newsletter at: www.averyhill.studio/contact. Use the same link to contact Avery with any other questions or concerns.

We open up a "room" on Zoom at 6 pm Pacific Time every Saturday evening. We start singing at 6:30 pm and we keep it going until the last person leaves. Feel free to come in anytime, and stay as long as you like. We run it kind of like a physical song circle. Everyone who wants to can sing once, and then we’ll do another round, and just keep going around as long as you like. Of course, it is totally fine to just listen and some people do. For more information, go to the heading ‘Song Circles‘ on this drop down menu.
