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
Dec 7 (Tue): virtual sing around, Leader: Pat Pauly
Dec 14 (Tue): virtual sing around, Leader: Janice Hanson

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...
