Upcoming Events

Americana Guitar & Song Study Workshop, Jan 27, Feb 24 and Mar 24

Jan 27 - Mar 24, 2018

Paul Mowbray and Lonny Koch present this informative and musically rich workshop on sone of the most famous artists of the Americana genre. People like the Carter Family, Jimmie Rogers, Townes Van Zandt, Hank Williams, Charlie Patton, Leadbelly, Gillian Welch, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Woodie Guthry...we've got a lot to choose from and even welcome your input if there's someone you really want to learn more about.

Our plan is to visit as many great songs as we can and play them with easy strum or fingerstyle guitar, looking at specific attributes in each piece that make them unique to play so we can get inside the style and get the feel right.

3 sessions, the last Saturday of each month, Jan 27, Feb 24, Mar 24,
