George Jackson (The Company, One Up, Two Down, Peter Rowan Bluegrass Trio, Triple Denim) delivers a hands-on and in-depth workshop all about Bluegrass. George is joined by his Triple Denim band mates Daniel Watkins and Mitch Brown to share and teach the basic principles, and all -important etiquette of playing in a Bluegrass band or jam session. Participants will learn a tune that everyone can join in on, and discuss what makes this music style so dynamic and exciting.
Jackson has recently returned from the USA where he completed a mentorship with GRAMMY nominated fiddler Casey Driessen, during his trip he won first place at the RockyGrass Banjo contest in Lyons Colorado. Watkins and Brown are also accomplished musicians who have travelled for their art, and all three will have great stories to share.
This workshop is suitable for Guitar, Mandolin, Banjo, Dobro, Bass, Fiddle and vocals. The night will end with an all-in jam on the music you’ve just been learning about. All ages and abilities welcome, some experience on your instrument recommended.
