Orrin Star Rhythm Mandolin Workshop in Western Massachusetts
By Mandolin Cafe
April 12, 2007 - 10:00 am
Greenfield, Mass. — Orrin Star will hold a Rhythm Mandolin workshop on Saturday, May 12, 2007 from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m at the St. James Episcopal Church, 8 Church Street.
Rhythm is a vital yet seldom focused-on aspect of mandolin playing. This workshop will cover a broad spectrum of approaches, from 'chopping' on the off-beat in a bluegrass ensemble to accompanying a fiddler or or singer with open chords, jamming on a reggae tune to playing a country ballad.
Geared to beginning through intermediate players. Limited to 12 participants. Includes written hand-outs. $45 fee.
Orrin will also be in concert there that evening there at the St James Coffeehouse.
