Instructor: Tony Watt (guitar, vocals) & Patrick McGonigle (fiddle, mandolin, vocals) & Mali Obomsawin (bass, vocals)
Style: Bluegrass Country
Tony will lead this "teacher-directed" bluegrass jam session, where students will have the opportunity to learn from each other and from discussions about how to improve their playing. Patrick will help out the fiddlers and mandolin players while Mali holds down the low end on bass. Like most bluegrass jams, we won't know what songs we'll be playing beforehand, but we won't play fast instrumentals, very fast vocal tunes, or obscure/difficult songs. You don't need to be able to sing or to improvise solos to attend, but it's more fun if you can. The best way to get prepared for this jam is to learn a common bluegrass song to sing with us (you're welcome to bring a copy of the verses to read from). Look for Tony's and Patrick's fine CDs in the FH store.
