Every Tuesday from Apr 26 through May 31, led by Steve Cheseborough, $50 for six classes. ONLINE CLASS VIA ZOOM.

The wonderful standard "Corrine, Corrina," written by bluesman Bo Carter in 1928 and later covered by many other artists in various genres, is a great antidote to worrying about Corona! We‘ll try to get everyone playing and singing it. The instructor will teach the guitar part (simple, easy to sing along with) and the harmonica part (challenging but fun) and a bunch of verses. If you want to join us on another instrument, come on in! Unfortunately Zoom doesn‘t really allow for ensemble playing but we‘ll try see how it goes. (harmonica or guitar, and singing, possible other instruments) And after the restrictions are released we‘ll have to try getting together to jam on it in person! Contact instructor Steve Cheseborough, chezztone@gmail.com, with any questions.

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.

This class explores songwriting as a means to uncover and express deeply-felt truths of the songwriter. We‘ll draw inspiration from great songs and poems and from the shared wisdom and experience of class participants. We‘ll write in class and between classes, share our songs, and explore ways of listening and responding that help draw out the writer‘s intention rather than impose the listener‘s. An inspiring, non-judgmental space in which to deepen songwriting practice.

Enrollment is limited to 10 participants. All levels of experience welcome.

Please note: because of the limited class size, payment is required with registration. A paid registration reserves your spot. Unpaid registrations will be moved to the waiting list once the class is full.

Sunday Easy Swing started a few years ago as a weekly informal workshop and jam session. All instruments and levels get the chance to learn and jam in a relaxed setting.

The idea was simple: to teach/analyze/learn and jam on classic swing repertoire starting with the jazz/blues and then into songs of the Great American Songbook (Gershwin, Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, etc).

The wonderful standard "Corrine, Corrina," written by bluesman Bo Carter in 1928 and later covered by many other artists in various genres, is a great antidote to worrying about Corona! We‘ll try to get everyone playing and singing it. The instructor will teach the guitar part (simple, easy to sing along with) and the harmonica part (challenging but fun) and a bunch of verses. If you want to join us on another instrument, come on in! Unfortunately Zoom doesn‘t really allow for ensemble playing but we‘ll try see how it goes. (harmonica or guitar, and singing, possible other instruments) And after the restrictions are released we‘ll have to try getting together to jam on it in person!

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.
