Featured Workshop

THE LOVERS' WALTZ (Intermediate to Advanced)

Presented by Jay Ungar & Molly Mason

Saturday, July 11th, 1:15pm - 2:45pm

Jay & Molly will teach their tune "The Lovers' Waltz" for fiddlers and guitarists, but other melody and accompanying instruments are welcome. The workshop begins with a demo of the arrangement by Jay & Molly. The group then splits and Jay works with the melody players on the tune, expression, ornamentation and possibly a harmony part, while Molly works with accompanists on chords, runs and rhythmic playing techniques. Then all come together at the end to play the arrangement as an ensemble.

Must register in advance for this workshop, space is limited and is based on a first come, first served basis. Call 814-827-2381 to reserve your spot.
