The Green House 73rd/Mill
Artichoke Community Music class led by Anne Weiss, $140 for seven classes, $25 drop-in. You know the basics and feel ready for a little bit of a challenge. We’ll go over piedmont, Chicago and delta blues styles and licks and tricks and new material to help you move up a step!
Sessions are led by Marina Dodgson (fiddle) and Maurice Condie (guitar). These are open access sessions, so there’s no need to book in advance, you’re welcome to just turn up and join in!
We believe great things happen when we play tunes together! People connect with each other and make friends, and we keep our music traditions alive by sharing tunes and passing them on. What’s more, playing tunes can make you feel happy, and if you do it often enough, you’ll notice that you are getting better at playing your instrument too!
It turns out that you don’t even have to be in the same place…great things still happen when we play music together, online from the comfort of your own home.
Phoenix Folk Ltd exists to promote participation and performance in folk and acoustic music, song and dance across the North East of England. We aim to be a friendly face of folk music, to help keep alive the great traditions of folk music and to encourage talent and personal musical development.

Feb 29 (Thu):
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.
His music is a unique blend of folk and jazz, resulting in a sound that is truly all his own.
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.
Mar 9 (Thu):
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.
He is an award-winning songwriter.
John Silliman Dodge
His influences range from classical to folk to rock to jazz to pop. As a result, my performances feature a wide range of styles—360 degrees of guitar from Bach to Hendrix to flamenco.
Arlo Leach‘s Jug Band Ensemble
Arlo‘s Jug Band Ensemble class meets on Thursday nights to learn traditional jug band instrumentation and repertoire. Their set will highlight some songs they learned during the most recent six-week session.
Just $10/week for the Winds of Donegal classes. Every Thursday we teach you the basics of the three‘s, seven‘s and jig steps so that you can enjoy the live music ceilis around Portland and Ireland. Classes are geared toward 13 and older. Bring a water bottle and wear comfortable shoes not heels.
Artichoke Community Music School
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.
