Zoom Class and SpringGrass!!!

 Hey Taborpals!

Zoom Class is coming up next Wednesday 3/10!
We'll keep digging into Streamline Cannonball and June Apple, and add Shady Grove into the mix. There's PLENTY of versions of this song out there, we'll be sticking pretty close to the David Grisman and Jerry Garcia version. Details in the music section on the site!

In other news, we (Patrick and Kaden) are putting on an all-zoom bluegrass festival on March 20!
It's called SpringGrass, and will feature workshops, performances, and everything in between from a plethora of local and national bluegrass extraordinaires. It's also donation based, with 100% of proceeds going to the artists. Check out the website for lineup and details, we'd love to see you there!

 Hey Taborgrassers!

We've got workshops this Saturday! Plus, Zoom Class Wednesday 2/24!

Workshops this Saturday 2/20:

FRETBOARD! This workshop is all about finding your way around it. We'll talk about figuring out what note you're on, finding scales, chords, and arpeggios, and how all the strings relate to each other. Let's go fretboard spelunking!

From Scruggs to  Hartford  to Danny Barnes, Brian has licks that he wants you to have.

This week we'll start looking at Streamlined Cannonball, a Roy Acuff song injected into the bluegrass universe by Doc Watson. Check out Doc Watson's take on it, plus a peak into Doc's legacy through Bryan Sutton and Billy Strings below. See you soon folks!
