Cheverly, Md. — Orrin Star will be presenting a mandolin workshop on Saturday, October 6, 2007 from noon to 2:00 p.m., 6318 Jason St. in Cheverly.

Using a solo to the classic tune "Nine Pound Hammer", this workshop examines how to take a simple vocal melody and extrude it into a full-sounding mandolin lead. It also introduces some essential end-of-phrase licks that can make a solo really jump.

Geared to experienced beginner and intermediate level players, the workshop is limited to 12 participants, and includes a written hand-out and complementary beverages. Cost is $40.
